Effect of prosthetic group of horseradish peroxidase on enzyme stability

I C VerezinL I Brovko


Constants of inactivation rate of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) apo-HRP and apo-HRP-protoporphyrin (PP) are estimated at the pH range 2.8-12.8 and 25 degrees C. Two ionogenic groups (acid and alkaline) are detected on cases of HRP and apo-HRP, which are responsible for stable HRP conformation. HRP stability within the pH range 5-10 exceeded 30 times that of apo-HRP, while the stability apo-HRP-PP complex is similar to that of apo-HRP. The data obtained show that formation of complex of apo-HRP with PP, an analogue of the prostetic group lacking central Fe atom, practically does not affect the stability of HRP protein globula at pH 5-10, but significantly stabylized apo-HRP at the extreme pH values. The complex formation of apo-HRP with active prosthetic group - hemin - results on the stable conformation of the HRP protein globula, which suggests a determining role of Fe ion - porphyrin complex (hemin) on the support of the stable HRP structure.

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
