ABSTRACT

The research is aimed at investigating the effect of temperature and heat stability of Rhodanese from the Liver of a local goat.  This research shows the existence of rhodanese from a local goat liver homogenate. It was observed that the enzyme was partially purified by ammonium sulphate precipitation and dialysis. The specific activity of enzyme after partial purification using ammonium sulphate precipitation and dialysis was 4.39 U/mg. The effect of temperatures between 30 and 80C on the rhodanese activity showed that optimum temperature for the enzyme was at 60C. It was found that the enzyme (rhodanese) from a local goat liver was stable at 60C, but was unstable at temperatures ≥ 70C.
