Pyruvate oxidase (E.C. is originated from Aerococcus viridans and used as a component of screen-printed phosphate biosensor for monitoring phosphate concentrations in a sequencing batch reactor (SBR) system. It consumes phosphate in the presence of pyruvate and oxygen and generates hydrogen peroxide, carbon dioxide and acetylphosphate.

The enzyme is a flavoprotein with the relatively tightly bound cofactors flavin adenine dinucleotide, thiamine pyrophosphate, and a divalent metal ion, with Mn2+ being the most effective.
Activity: 40 units/mg powder. One unit is defined as amount of enzyme required to generate 1umol of H202 per minute at 37C, pH 6.5. Contaminate info: Glutamate oxalacetate transaminase (GOT) 002% by activity; Glutamate pyruvate transaminase (GPT) 006% by activity; Lactate Oxidase 002% by activity; Catalase not detectable.



  • Study of aerobic metabolism of bacteria
  • Used for enzymatic determination of AST and ALT
  • Used to monitor phosphate concentration in SBR system
