thyroid peroxidase

(redirected from iodinase)

thyroid peroxidase

thyroid oxidoreductase that catalyzes incorporation of iodide to tyrosine residues in the production of thyroxine, in a process termed organification (q.v.); deficiency of this enzyme leads to a loss of the iodotyrosine derivatives and iiodine from the thyroid and results in goiter.

Copper is necessary for the enzymes that form thyronine from tyrosine and is essential for the oxidation of iodine for formation of thyroxin from thyronine (iodine peroxidase, tyrosine iodinase, thyroid peroxidase, and many proteinases (names may vary; many papers in development).
