[en] Hydroperoxide lyase (HPOOH lyase) was extracted from tomato leaves (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) and purified to apparent homogeneity by fractionated precipitation with polyethylene glycol 6000, ion exchange chromatography, and ultrafiltration. The enzyme is a trimer of 73 000 Da units with a molecular mass of 216 000 (determined by native-PAGE and gel filtration); its pI is around 4.9. Enzyme activity measurments realized with 9- and 13-hydroperoxides of linoleic acid (9-La OOH and 13-La OOH, respectively), R-linolenic acid (9-Ln OOH and 13-Ln OOH, respectively), and ç-linolenic acid (9-çLn OOH and 13-ç-Ln OOH, respectively) revealed a great affinity for 13-Ln OOH. The enzyme is rapidly inhibited by its substrate (13-Ln OOH), but preincubation with the other five hydroperoxides, which are not degraded by the enzyme, also resulted in activity inhibition. Dialysis could not restore the activity. When 13-Ln OOH is reduced in its corresponding alcohol or converted to its methyl ester, the inhibition is reduced.
