Catalase and Peroxidase
We have seen how a protein can affect equilibrium constants (chapter 7). We now want to look at the more complex question of how the protein can affect the rates of reaction, and we shall examine the reactions of H2O2 with catalases and peroxidases. For a general introduction to these enzymes see the reviews by Nicholls and Schonbaum on catalases159, by Paul on peroxidases168 and by Brill on both groups34, and the book by Saunders, Holmes-Siedle and Stark, Peroxidases196. Where no specific reference is given, the information in this section is taken from one of these sources.
