  The enzyme glucose oxidase was produced by fermentation technology, using Aspergillus niger as fermentation organism and rice polishing as substrate. Maximum production of enzyme (3.42 U mL-1) was recovered at substrate level of 2% after 36 h of submerged fermentation. The pH for the optimal production of enzyme was found to be 4. Addition of salts such as urea (0.3%), CaCO3 (0.04%) and KH2PO4 (0.6%) into the fermentation medium enhanced enzyme production while MGSO4.7H2O was found to inhabit microbial growth and glucose oxidase production by A. niger.

  Peroxidase from tomato was extracted and partially purified by means of ammonium sulphate [(NH4)2SO4] precipitation technique and ion exchange chromatography. The crude extract having the specific activity of 0.239U mg-1 was subjected to (NH4)2SO4 precipitation technique for partial purification of peroxidase. The specific activity of (NH4)2SO4 precipitated enzyme was 0.546U mg-1 with protein contents of 0.412mg ml-1. After ion exchange chromatography through DEAE-Cellulose columns, the specific activity was 11.844U mg-1 and the protein contents were decreased to 0.0358mg ml-1 showing that unnecessary proteins have been eliminated. Finally, partially purified enzyme was subjected to SDS-Electrophoresis for confirming the purification. So it was concluded that crude and partially purified enzymes from tomato possess an appreciable enzyme activity.

  Following an oral dose of 250 mg of clarithromycin to 14 healthy adult male volunteers, renal clearance and urinary excretion of the drug and that of endogenous creatinine were determined. Before drug administration control samples and after drug administration blood and urine samples were collected, at predetermined time periods. The plasma and urine samples were assayed for endogenous creatinine by spectrophotometric methods and clarithromycin by microbiological assay. Mean ± SE values for the blood and urine pH mean were 7.9±0.08 and 5.7±0.17 respectively. The rate of urine flow (diuresis) was 0.019±0.003 ml/min/kg and creatinine was cleared at rate of 1.95±0.164 ml/min/kg of body weight. Average±SE value for clarithromycin clearance was 0.54±0.08ml/min/kg and mean±SE value for clearance ratio was 0.31±0.061. Cumulative amount of dose excreted until 24 hrs. showed an average value 6.1±0.76 percent. A significant positive correlation between diuresis and renal clearance of clarithromycin indicate the back diffusion or reabsorption of the drug.

  Peroxidase, extracted from soybean seeds and was partially purified by precipitating with ammonium sulfate and 85 % saturation resulted in an increase in the activity of peroxidase up to 1.21 fold. Purification was carried out by diethyl amminoethyl cellulose chromatography and purification fold obtained was 2.62. Then, the enzyme was subjected to 10 % sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis which resulted in a marked decrease in unwanted proteins.
