Catalytic properties and thermostability of horseradish peroxidase covalently bound with Sepharose by carbohydrate residues of the enzyme

I V BerezinD P Fel'dman


A procedure for isolation of stabilized preparations of peroxidase, covalently bound with AH-Sepharose 4B by the enzyme carbohydrate residues, which had been previously oxidized by iodine acid, is proposed. The catalytic properties and thermostability of soluble oxidized and immobilized peroxidase has been studied and a comparison of these properties with those of the native enzyme has been made. It has been demonstrated that the oxidation of the carbohydrate residues dose not affect eh Km value for soluble oxidized peroxidase, but leads to a decrease in the kcat approximately two times for the reaction of peroxidase exidation of o-dianizidine. In case of immobilized peroxidase the Km value for H2O2 does not change, whereas the Km value for o-dianizidine is decreased approximately 20 times. It is demostrated that the chemical structure of the matrix surface and in case of the same matrix used--the degree and type of modification of the functional groups of protein, have a strong effect on the stability of the immobilized enzyme.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Autism: Motor Learning

A common feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the impairment of motor control and learning, consistent with perturbation in cerebellar function. Find the latest research on ASD and motor learning here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

Protein Localization in Disease & Therapy

Localization of proteins is critical for ensuring the correct location for physiological functioning. If an error occurs, diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative disorders and cancers can present. Therapies are being explored to target this mislocalization. Here is the latest research on protein localization in disease and therapy.

Genetic Screens in Bacteria

Genetic screens can provide important information on gene function as well as the molecular events that underlie a biological process or pathway. Here is the latest research on genetic screens in bacteria.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
