-
the purple form of enzyme, in which the copper centre is in the oxidized [2Cu2+:2Cu+] redox state, is redox active, although it is still catalytically non-competent, as its specific activity is lower than that of the activated fully reduced enzyme and comparable with that of the enzyme with the copper centre in either the [1Cu2+:3Cu+] redox state or in the redox inactive state
