Plant derived enzymes
Horseradish peroxidase (HRP), is a plant derived enzyme and is extracted from the roots of horseradish and is worldwide used extensively in biochemistry applications.
Our Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) is a pure, brown to red-brown lyophilized powder for reconstitution and use in protein research methods. HRP is a metalloenzyme with many isoforms, of which the most studied type is C.
The main application for HRP in molecular biology and protein research is as a reporter system for immunoassays and other probe-based assay techniques such as ELISA, Western blotting, EMSA and Southern blotting.
The enzyme is usually conjugated to specific secondary antibodies or streptavidin, and its activity is detected with a color-forming (or light-generating) substrate.
One unit catalysis the production of 1 mg of purpurogallin from pyrogallol in 20 seconds at 20°C and pH 6.0.
Our product has typically ≥ 300 U/mg and his highly soluble, resulting in a clear, brownish solution.
