Acid⇌alkaline transition in horseradish peroxidase and lactoperoxidase has been investigated by use of circular dichroism and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The conformational changes associated with this transition in these hemeproteins have been monitored and pK of the transition determined.
