Peroxidase associated with isolated horseradish cell walls catalyzes the formation of H2O2 in the presence of NADH. The reaction is stimulated by various monophenols, especially of coniferyl alcohol. NADH can be provided by a bound malate dehydrogenase. This system is capable of polymerizing coniferyl alcohol yielding an insoluble dehydrogenation polymer… CONTINUE READING
