Purification and characterization of glutathione peroxidase 1 in the red muscle of Pacific bluefin tuna Thunnus orientalis

Glutathione peroxidase GPx1 was purified from the red muscle of Pacific bluefin tuna Thunnus orientalis and its enzymatic properties were characterized. The enzyme was optimally active at pH 7.4 with a specific activity for hydrogen peroxide and a K m of 6.7 μM. cDNA was also isolated and it contained a predicted open reading frame (ORF) encoding a 188 amino acid protein. The...

Degradation of myofibrils in cultured yellowtail Seriola quinqueradiata burnt meat: effects of a myofibril-bound EDTA-sensitive protease

“Burnt meat” is a term used to describe the white (pale, grainy, exudative) muscle of yellowtail or tuna. It (with lightness parameter, L* ≥ 55) was observed after 2 h storage in the suffocate in air (SA) 29°C group and after 4 h storage in the spinal cord destruction (SCD) 29°C group. In the SA 17°C group, burnt meat was also observed after 4 h storage. In contrast, the meat in...
