The activity and secondary structure of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was studied in aqueous solution containing α-, β- and γ-cyclodextrin (CD). The results showed that the activity of HRP was enhanced to different extents by the three kinds of CD. A Fourier Transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy study indicated that the amount of α-helical structure was important for the activity of HRP. This phenomenon is discussed.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
