    • 3 Pages

    Maize catalase is the product of two independent catalase genes. When these two subunits, 〖Ct〗_1 and 〖Ct〗_2 (inactive dimers), are present at the same point in development, maize catalase exists as an active tetramer. Between pollination and seed development, only the 〖Ct〗_1 subunit is present, and therefore only one of the two isozymes (enzymes that differ in amino acid sequence but catalyze the same chemical reaction) is present at this time. The 〖Ct〗_2 subunit is first noticed as the 〖Ct〗_1
