Objective

The objective of today's lab was to determine the amount of reagent necessary to fully reduce horseradish peroxidase (HRP). HRP oxidation will be done with potassium ferricyanide K3[Fe(CN)6]. K3[Fe(CN)6], which has a reduction potential of 424mV. HRP reduction will be done with Sodium Dithionite.

  • the goal is to determine the endpoints of the oxidation and reduction of HRP.

HRP Oxidation

HRP Oxidation Protocol

  • Run UV-vis of a blank buffer sample.
  • Prepare a 1mL sample of 10μM HRP in 50Tris, 50Nacl, pH=7.5 buffer. This buffer should be degassed) directly in a clean glass cuvette.
  • Take spectrum of the prepared 10μM HRP sample.
  • Add 2μL of K3[Fe(CN)6] to the prepared sample.
  • Take UV/vis spectrum of the sample.
  • Repeat steps 4-5 until complete oxidation of HRP.
