Why does the relative amount of catalase activity vary in tissues of 
different types, in particular liver, apple, potato and kidney.  Why is 
that when hydrogen peroxide is added to liver tissue, a greater volume of 
oxygen is produced than when the same experiment is carried out using 
apple, potato or kidney tissue?
