The protein encoded by the Ceruloplasmin gene is a metalloprotein that binds most of the copper in plasma and is involved in theperoxidation of Fe(II)transferrin to Fe(III) transferrin. Mutations in this gene cause aceruloplasminemia, whichresults in iron accumulation and tissue damage, and is associated with diabetes and neurologic abnormalities.(provided by RefSeq)
