Samples are homogenized and enzymes are extracted into a cold, pH 6.5 buffer. A protein determination by the Method of Bradford is performed on the enzyme extract (supernatant) to normalize subsequent enzyme results to the efficiency of the protein extraction. The enzyme extract is mixed with catechol and Polyphenol Oxidase activity is measured spectrophotometrically by the rate of formation of 1,2 benzoquinone at 410nm.
