Four peroxidase (EC 18.104.22.168) isozymes were isolated from each of two flax genotrophs. All four isozymes were glycoproteins and all exhibited indoleacetic acid (IAA) oxidase activity. The percentage purity of two of the isozymes was very high; these isozymes differed in percentage carbohydrate and in peroxidase and IAA oxidase specific activities. Three of the isozymes displayed molecular weight values of about 43 000; for the fourth, molecular weight was considerably higher. Corresponding isozymes from the genotrophs and from two other flax genotypes displayed molecular weight differences which corresponded to electrophoretic relative mobility differences. Enzyme yield per unit fresh weight was higher for one genotroph than the other, and the balance between peroxidase activity and IAA oxidase activity between the genotrophs was different.
