Objectives

  1. Find endpoints (100%) of oxidation and reduction of HRP


HRP Oxidation

General Protocol:

  1. Run UV-vis of a blank buffer sample.
  2. 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.
  3. Take spectrum of the prepared 10μM HRP sample.
  4. Add 2μL of K3[Fe(CN)6] to the prepared sample.
  5. Take UV/vis spectrum of the sample.
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 until complete oxidation of HRP.
    • Note: When preparing the sample add all components 'very slowly
    • Note: Allow all samples to sit for approximately 5 minutes before taking the spectrum
    • Note: No more than 20uL should be added of the K3[Fe(CN)6] to the sample.


Table 1: Sample preparation for HRP

Dilution 'M1'[μM] 'V1' [mL] 'M2'[μM] 'V2' [mL]
117.25.580101
  • Added .419mL of buffer to reach a volume of 1mL.

Figure 2. Enlarged Absorption Spectra of the Oxidation of HRP with K3[Fe(CN)6]

  • Initial drop in absorbance occurred after the addition of 2uL K3[Fe(CN)6].
  • The addition of 2uL of K3[Fe(CN)6] caused the complete oxidation of HRP. This indicates that HRP was mostly oxidized prior to additon of K3[Fe(CN)6].

HRP Reduction

General Protocol:

  1. Run UV-vis of a blank buffer sample.
  2. 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.
  3. Take spectrum of the prepared 10μM HRP sample.
  4. Add 2μL of Na2S2O4 to the prepared sample.
  5. Take UV/vis spectrum of the sample.
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 until complete oxidation of HRP.
    • Note: When preparing the sample add all components 'very slowly
    • Note: Allow all samples to sit for approximately 5 minutes before taking the spectrum
    • Note: No more than 16uL should be added of the Na2S2O4 to the sample.

  • Note: Only 10uL were added because there were noted discrepencies in the group data. Reduction of HRP will be repeated next lab.
