Abstract: The heme-containing catalase-peroxidases are bifunctional enzymes that degrade hydrogen peroxide either as a catalaseThe catalatic reaction, with a more rapid turnover rate, dominates over the peroxidatic reaction, and the in vivo peroxidatic substrate remains unidentified, suggesting that the main role of the enzyme is the removal of H 2 O 2 , preventing the formation of highly reactive and damaging breakdown products of H 2 O 2 . However, the enzyme has a close sequence resemblance to plant peroxidases (1, 2… Show more
