The conversion is described of phenolsulphonephtalein (phenol red) to 3,3',5,5'-tetrabromophenolsulphonephthalein (bromophenol blue) by bromoper-oxidase from the brown alga Ascophyllum nodosum. This reaction provides a convenient assay for the detection of bromoperoxidase activity in vitro. Bromoperoxidase was shown to be stable under turnover conditions for three weeks at room temperature, catalyzing the bromination of phenol red into bromophenol blue. When stored at room temperature in organic sol vents such as acetone, methanol, ethanol [present up to 60% (v/v)], and 1-propanol [40% (v/v)], bromoperoxidase was stable for more than one month. As far as we know this is the first example of an oxidoreductase which displays such great stability. This enhances the applicability of the enzyme in organic synthesis.
