Purification of soybean peroxidaseFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

Our hypothesis that soybean peroxidase can be purified by liquid chromatography has been proven correct.

The discovery of soybean peroxidase is a very important step in bringing medical assistance to the needy in poorer nations. Using soybean peroxidase means that diagnostic kits for AIDS can be produced for the masses. The longer shelf life will also enable the medical kit to be stocked in more remote areas.

Also consider

The science fair project can also be done using different enzymes, like horseradish peroxidase.

Try to repeat the measurement at different pH solutions.

The experiment may be repeated using different concentrations of salt.
