  • Based on a phylogenetic analysis, catalases can be classified into clade 1, 2 and 3. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • Phylogenetic relationships among prokaryotic and eukaryotic catalases. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • Surprisingly, phylogenetic analyses indicate that the N. locustae catalase is not specifically related to fungal homologs, as one would expect, but is instead closely related to proteobacterial sequences. (mendeley.com)
  • Re: Why do aerobic organisms require catalase? (madsci.org)
  • In maize endosperm there are two electrophoretic variants of catalase. (sciencemag.org)
  • Aeorbic organisms require catalase because the oxygen atmosphere that we breathe is full of toxic forms of oxygen. (madsci.org)
  • There is no evidence that the N. locustae catalase functions in a cryptic peroxisome. (mendeley.com)
  • The body produces catalase, but amounts decrease during the ageing process, causing people to develop diseases such as cancer and conditions such as greying hair. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Alfalfa, brussel sprouts and the young sprouts of dark green plants contain significantly higher amounts of catalase than older ones. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Many vegetables contain sufficient amounts of catalase to sustain health. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Different plant materials show very different amounts of catalase activity - and the most metabolically active tissues show the greatest activity. (nuffieldfoundation.org)
