What Are Enzymes? Enzymes derived from natural animal-based sources continue to be important components in the manufacture of key biologic drugs. Creative Enzymes has decades of experience in manufacturing extracted biologics materials and extracting native enzymes from animal-based sources.

Enzymes Functions Laccase is a blue copper oxidase that reduces molecular oxygen to water. Laccase oxidizes polyphenols, methoxy-substituted phenols and diamines, but not tyrosine. Oxidation by laccase is an one-electron reaction that generates a free radical.

Spectrophotometric Enzyme Assays The spectrophotometric assay is a classic enzyme test and still remains as the most widely used assay for the low cost and robust reproducibility. During a spectrophotometric assay, the operator follows the course of an enzyme reaction by measuring the changes in the intensity of the light absorbed or scattered by the reaction solution.

Enzyme Activity Measurement for Oxidoreductases Using Spectrophotometric Assays Oxidoreductase enzymes play an important role in metabolic process. Spectrophotometric enzyme assays has been widely applied in quantification of activity levels for all types of oxidoreductase enzymes.

Enzyme Activity Measurement for Transferases Transferases are extremely important to a vast range of physiological functions. They catalyze numerous biological reactions that are critical to a living system. Due to the versatile roles of transferases, they are popular targets in biomedical and biotechnical research.

Multi-Copper Oxidase Families Multicopper oxidases (MCOs) family, a group of polyphenol oxidases, has a three-domain structure and usually contains four copper atoms. MCOs are characterized by the three spectroscopically different copper binding sites. They are T1 with one copper atom, T2 with also one copper atom and T3 with two copper atoms. T2 and T3 organize into a single copper cluster. Two histidines and one cysteine serve as ligands for copper at T1 and eight histidines for copper binding at the T2/T3 ...
