Purification and characterization of TMAOase of saithe and hake.

Project Details

Description

The intracellular distribution of the enzyme TMAO aldolase (EC 4.1.2.32) is determined from detergent-treated tissue extracts. The enzyme is isolated and purified by chromatography and its properties are studied. Thereby, greater knowledge is gained of the factor that determines the formation of dimethylamine and formaldehyde in frozen fish. This knowledge forms a basis for the possibility of influencing the process that is considered important for quality deterioration during frozen storage.
