General description

Sigma Life Science is committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for waste prevention when used in fuel cell and cellulosic ethanol research. For more information see the article in biofiles.

Other Notes

This product is supplied as a mixture of isozymes, mol. mass (40-65 kDa).

Unit Definition

One unit corresponds to the amount of enzyme, which oxidizes 1 μmole Mn2+ per minute to Mn3+ at pH 4.5 and 25 °C

Physical form

Supplied as a lyophilized powder containing ~50% sodium tartrate

only partially soluble in water or buffer


Manganese peroxidase from white-rot fungus (Phanerochaete chrysosporium) is from the peroxidase family and is used to oxidize manganese. It may be used to study wound healing.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Manganese peroxidase catalyzes the oxidation of Mn2+ to Mn3+. Mn3+ is then in complex with oxalate, which is able to oxidize lignin. Manganese peroxidase from Phanerochaete chrysosporium binds 2 calcium ions per subunit. It binds 1 heme B (iron-protoporphyrin IX) group per subunit .
