Abstract: Recently, acidic electrolyzed water (AEW) has been applied in seafood preservation as a novel technology. It is reported that AEW has strong ability to delay the development of melanosis in Litopenaeus vannamei and extend its shelflife. In this paper, polyphenoloxidase (PPO), an essential enzyme for melanosis in Litopenaeus vannamei, was extracted and purified. The effects and kinetics of AEW on purified PPO were then investigated. Based on sodium dodecyl sulfatepolyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, PPO from Litopenaeus vannamei was well purified. Kinetic studies revealed that AEW exhibited inhibitory effects on PPO with a dose-effect relationship. Moreover, AEW showed mixed-type inhibition on PPO with inhibitory constant Ki value of 0.64 mmol/L. In conclusion, this study can provide a theoretical basis for further exploring the mechanism of AEW in food preservation.
