Notes: Phenol-Oxidizing Enzymes in the Heartwood of Pinus radiata
Two phenol-oxidizing enzymes (o-diphenol:O2 oxidoreductase, EC No. 18.104.22.168 and p-diphenol:O2 oxidoreductase, EC No. 22.214.171.124) were found in fresh heartwood of Pinus radiata D. Don. Evidence suggests strongly that these enzymes were of host (rather than microbial) origin remaining active after necrosis of host parenchyma during heartwood formation. This could partly explain the decrease in free phenols and corresponding decrease in decay resistance which frequently occur as heartwood ages. Forest Sci. 19:153-155.
