|Abstract:||Solanum melongena fruit juice contains peroxidase activity of the order of 0×125 IU/mL. A method for the 11-fold purification of the enzyme was developed. The Km values of the peroxidase for the substrates guaiacol and hydrogen peroxide were 6×5 mM and 0×33 mM, respectively. The pH and temperature optima were 5×5 and 84°C, respectively using guaiacol as the substrate. Sodium azide and phenyl hydrazine inhibited the enzyme competitively.|
