I browsed your archive and found Amber's question dated 11.12.96. I'm fine about catalase, but not clear about the metabolic origins of hydrogen peroxide. I understand it's a strong oxidising agent, but which enzymes/pathways does it most affect? I'm trying to find out for students in their final year of high school, so a response at about 2nd year undergrad level would be ideal. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Millennium!
