Activating Compound

Activating Compound Comment Organism Structure
4-aminoantipirine 0.009%, ranging from 0.006 to 0.074% Saccharomyces cerevisiae
phenol activity positively affected by the presence of 0.018% phenol, ranging from 0.006 to 0.123% Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Triton X-100 0.1% of Triton X-100 slightly stimulates enzyme activity Saccharomyces cerevisiae


Organism UniProt Comment Textmining
Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Specific Activity [micromol/min/mg]

Specific Activity Minimum [┬Ámol/min/mg] Specific Activity Maximum [┬Ámol/min/mg] Comment Organism
additional information
consumption of oxygen determined by oxygraphy, activity measured by peroxidase chromogen method, a 120 min reaction time and a concentration of 0.5 M of glycerol phosphate considered as best conditions for determination of enzyme activity Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Storage Stability

Storage Stability Organism
40┬░C, during storage for 21 days 20% of activity lost, sodium azide as stabilizer in a concentration of 0.05% maintains activity of the enzyme in 98.4%, addition of sucrose maintains only 74% of activity Saccharomyces cerevisiae
