Three-phase partitioning (TPP) is a novel separation process used for the extraction and purification of biomolecules. The biomolecules are recovered in a purified form at the interface (precipitate), while the contaminants partition in t-butanol and aqueous phases. Peroxidase from the leaves of Ipomoea palmata was purified by using TPP. The ratio of the crude extract to t-butanol of 1:1 and 30% ammonium sulfate at 37 °C resulted in about 160% activity recovery and twofold purification in the aqueous phase of the first cycle of TPP. On subjecting the aqueous phase to the second cycle of TPP, a purification of 18-fold was achieved with about 81% activity recovery. The sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis analysis showed substantial purification, and the molecular weight of peroxidase was found to be 20.1 KDa. The present study shows a higher degree of purification and activity yield as a primary purification process in comparison with existing literature values, thus demonstrating TPP as an attractive downstream process for the purification of peroxidase.
