Effects of bilirubin on detection of hydrogen peroxide by use of peroxidase.

Bilitubin interferes with the quantitation of hydrogen peroxide in reagent systems in which peroxidase is used. Difference spectra suggest that this interference is a combination of chemical and spectral effects. The data presented are most consistent with the following interpretation: (a) bilirubin destroys part of the reactive intermediate formed in the… CONTINUE READING
