Artificial nanoenzymes which can overcome some drawbacks of natural enzymes is a challenging topic in the biosensor field. Herein, we demonstrated 5, 10, 15, 20-tetrakis (4-carboxylpheyl)-porphyrin modified magnetic ZnFeO nanoparticles loaded on the surface of reduced graphene oxide (Por-ZnFeO/rGO), which exhibited intrinsic peroxidase-like activity and rapidly oxidized the peroxidase substrate 3, 3', 5, 5'-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) into a blue product (OxTMB) distinguished by naked eyes. Interestingly, by comparative study of different nanomaterials ZnFeO nanoparticles, ZnFeO/rGO and Por-ZnFeO, Por-ZnFeO/rGO was proved to possess the highest peroxidase-like activity. Electron spin resonance (ESR) verified the catalytic activity of Por-ZnFeO/rGO for HO was due to hydroxyl radical from decomposition of HO. Temperature and pH strongly affected the peroxidase-like activity of Por-ZnFeO/rGO nanocomposites. Under optimal conditions (pH = 4, 40 °C), the constructed sensor based on the catalytic activity of the Por-ZnFeO/rGO could be conveniently used for colorimetric detection of HO in the range of 0.7-30 μM with the detection limit of 0.54 μM. Moreover, the colorimetric sensor based on Por-ZnFeO/rGO exhibited a good linear response to glutathione (GHS) in the range of 2-40 μM with a low detection limit of 0.76 μM. The detection of GHS can be easily realized through the obvious color change by naked eyes without any complicated instrumentation.

A 66-kDa peroxidase found in EOSINOPHIL granules. Eosinophil peroxidase is a cationic protein with a pI of 10.8 and is comprised of a heavy chain subunit and a light chain subunit. It possesses cytotoxic activity towards BACTERIA and other organisms, which is attributed to its peroxidase activity.
NADPH oxidases that contain two additional EF HAND MOTIFS and an N-terminal PEROXIDASE domain. They are expressed by THYROCYTES and EPITHELIAL CELLS of the kidney, liver, trachea, lung, and glandular tissues such as the testis, pancreas, and prostate. They are critical for the activity of THYROID PEROXIDASE and play a role in the production of thyroid hormones; they may also have antimicrobial activity through the generation of REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES.

The lectin wheatgerm agglutinin conjugated to the enzyme HORSERADISH PEROXIDASE. It is widely used for tracing neural pathways.
An immunoassay utilizing an antibody labeled with an enzyme marker such as horseradish peroxidase. While either the enzyme or the antibody is bound to an immunosorbent substrate, they both retain their biologic activity; the change in enzyme activity as a result of the enzyme-antibody-antigen reaction is proportional to the concentration of the antigen and can be measured spectrophotometrically or with the naked eye. Many variations of the method have been developed.
