Abstract


Lipoxygenases are a family of related nonheme iron-containing enzymes that are widely distributed in plants. They own a uniform behaviour with respect to most properties but they exhibit some diversity, for instance in relation to their substrate and product specificity. This first part give a brief survey of plant lipoxygenases properties, comparing where necessary plant enzymes with animal lipoxygenases.
