Don't play with your health and fertility, consult your doctor. ...Read more

Why would low copper levels cause low ceruloplasmin levels?

Why would low copper levels cause low ceruloplasmin levels?

Stabilized by copper: In this case, the protein that becomes ceruloplasmin (called apoceruloplasmin) is more stable in the presence of copper. So low copper levels will cause a faster degradation of the protein that otherwise becomes ceruloplasmin. Additionally, unlike some proteins, there is no increased production of ceruloplasmin when copper levels are low, . ...Read more
