An optimized procedure for the purification of Zo peroxidase (ZoPrx), a low abundance peroxidase from Japanese radish roots

Purification of low abundance enzymes for biochemical characterization is frequently labor and cost-intensive. The existence of co-expressing multigene families increases the complexity of the procedure even further as it occurs with plant peroxidases where only the most abundant species have been studied. In this paper we present an optimized purification method for Zo peroxidase, a low abundance isoenzyme with unusual...

Food analytical evaluation of fruits and vegetables-based diets in relation to human carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are the major nutrients of fruits and vegetables in human nutrition. Sucrose is one of the important parameters for the assessment of the commercial quality of the fruit, since consumers prefer the sweetest fruits. Results showed that fructose, glucose, sucrose contents were high in Cordia myxa (9.38, 12.75 and 29.09%) respectively and the starch content was high in Alocacia...
