Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a heme protein essential for innate immunity and is primarily located in neutrophils. It plays a critical role in pathogen defense by producing antimicrobial hypochlorous acid from hydrogen peroxide. While it is crucial for immune responses, MPO-generated reactive oxidant species, including hypochlorous acid, can also contribute to tissue damage during inflammation. Clinically, MPO serves as a valuable marker for identifying neoplastic tissues, aiding in the detection of cells associated with various cancers like acute myelogenous leukemia and progranulocytic leukemia.
