Polyphenol oxidase (PPO) enzyme is of great commercial interest because it is related to the browning of fruits. In this practical spanning two weeks, we will use classical biochemical techniques to extract a PPO enzyme from a banana or apple, perform an assay for PPO activity and protein content, and assess data to discuss reproducibility in science.
The Society for Experimental Biology (SEB) is launching Integrative Cell, an exciting new cell biology journal. The Society is recruiting multiple co-Editors-in-Chief (co-EiCs) to guide the early development of the journal over a four-year term. The SEB welcomes applications from individuals or joint applications from groups.
