Enzymatic spectrophotometric determination of nitrites in beer

Enzymatic spectrophotometric determination of nitrites in beer

A colorimetric assay for the estimation of nitrite in beer based on c-type multiheme enzyme nitrite reductase (NiR) isolated from Desulfovibrio desulfuricans ATCC 27774, was developed. Using the enzyme in solution, nitrite assay was linear in the 10-8-10-2 M range with a detection limit of 10-8 M and a recovery in the range 90-107%. The imprecision ranged from 4 to 10% on the entire calibration curve.
