Novel applications of peroxidase include treatment of wastewater containing phenolic compounds and removal of peroxide from industrial effluents and foodstuffs to increase their shelf life [2,[ The function of peroxidase found in soybeans is to initiate the growth process when the plant is growing or injured. The hypothesis was that there will be no difference in the levels of peroxidase between the different strains of soybeans regardless of whether they are genetically modified (GMO) or non-genetically modified (non-GMO). Soybean peroxidase (SBP) is an oxidoreductase-class enzyme extracted from soybean seed coats (hulls). SBP has been extensively studied in recent years for its role in various biotechnological. Peroxidase Adivity in the Seed Coat, Root, and Leaf Seed coat peroxidase activity, controlled by the Ep locus, is thought to be unrelated to peroxidase activity in the root or leaf tissues (Dunleavy and Urs, ). This possibility was examined by comparing six soybean varieties (three E:pEp.

peroxidase, radish peroxidase and tobacco peroxidase (named after their sources). Peroxidases are versatile biocatalyst with an ever increasing number of applications (Colonn et al., , May , Veitch and Smith ). Roots of horseradish serves at present as the major source of commercially available peroxidase, however, the.

Heme proteins with histidine as proximal ligand. The iron in the resting enzyme is Fe(III). They also peroxidize non-phenolic substrates such as 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) and 2,2'-azinobis(3-ethylbenzthiazolinesulfonic acid) (ABTS). Characterization. The glutathione peroxidase family consists of 8 known human isoforms. Glutathione peroxidases use glutathione as an electron donor and are active with both hydrogen peroxide and organic hydroperoxide substrates. Gpx1, Gpx2, Gpx3, and Gpx4 have been shown to be selenium-containing enzymes, whereas Gpx6 is a selenoprotein in humans with cysteine-containing homologues in rodents. J. Everse, in Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry (Second Edition), Structure and function. Peroxidases are a group of enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of a substrate by hydrogen peroxide or an organic peroxide. Most peroxidases are ferric heme proteins – one notable exception being the glutathione peroxidase, which is a selenium-containing enzyme. Soybean seed coat peroxidase is well suited because of its stability, ease of extraction, widespread availability and potential for adding to the soy value chain. Since crude enzyme often works better than purified enzyme, the only additional cost may be in concentrating the extract.
