L6632 Sigma

Lipoxidase from Glycine max (soybean)

Type V, ammonium sulfate suspension, 500,000-1,000,000 units/mg protein

Synonym: Linoleate:oxygen oxidoreductase, Lipoxygenase



Analysis Note

Protein determined by biuret.


The soybean enzyme will use arachidonic acid as a substrate, with ~ 15% of the activity indicated using linoleic acid as the substrate; the product of arachidonic acid oxidation is 12- or 15-hydroperoxyarachidonic acid (12-HPETE or 15-HPETE).

Lipoxidase from Glycine max (soybean) has been used for the modification of low density lipoprotein, isolated from human plasma.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Catalyzes the hydroperoxidation of lipids containing a cis,cis-1,4-pentadiene structure.

Preparation Note

Prepared by ion exchange chromatography and hydrophobic interaction chromatography.

Unit Definition

One unit will cause an increase in A234 of 0.001 per min at pH 9.0 at 25 °C when linoleic acid is the substrate in 3.0 ml volume (1 cm light path). One A234 unit is equivalent to the oxidation of 0.12 μmole of linoleic acid.

Physical form

Suspension in 2.3 M (NH4)2SO4 solution, pH approx. 6.0

Ammonium Sulfate Suspensions - Technical Note

Note that for an ammonium sulfate suspension, most of the enzyme will be in solid form. It is likely that only negligible amounts of enzyme will be in the ammonium sulfate solution.
