Product Description

Catalase occurs in almost all aerobically respiring organisms and serves to protect cells from the toxic effects of hydrogen peroxide.It promotes growth of cells including T-cells, B-cells, myeloid leukemia cells, melanoma cells, mastocytoma cells and normal and transformed fibroblast cells.Defects in catalase are the cause of acatalasemia,a metabolic disorder characterized by absence of catalase activity in red cells and is often associated with ulcerating oral lesions.

Usage Statement

Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.

Key Applications


SKU 02191341-CF
Alternate Names H2O2:H2O2 oxidoreductase
Base Catalog Number 191341
Biochemical Physiological Actions Catalase activates the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, a reactive oxygen species, into water and oxygen. It functions as a natural antioxidant, protecting cells against oxidative damage to proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. Catalase has also been used to study the role reactive oxygen species play in gene expression and apoptosis.
