PeroxiMar – Peroxidases from marine macroalgae for the improvement of molecular biological measurement methods

Contact Person:

Dr. Levent Piker


The aim of the project is the identification, isolation and characterization of usable peroxidases from marine algae for use in test systems in cosmetics and food industry as well as biotechnology. An important goal criterion is the improvement of the properties in laboratory practice, such as: B. high stability to H2O2. For this purpose, their peroxidases are to be isolated and characterized in various algae.
