Peroxidase, horseradish is used in the oxidation of luminol to 3-aminophthalate. It is often used in conjugates to determine the presence of a molecular target, especially in the detection of specific protein in a western blot after conjugation with antibody. Further, it is highly reactive toward human tumor cells.
