3.4 Detection of enzymatic activities
The detection methods based on measuring enzymatic activities
are limited to the detection of transgenes that represent enzymes.
Enzymatic function of a protein depends on the structural preservation
of the protein molecule even more than the recognition of the
protein by antibodies. Therefore, an important restriction of
enzymatic methods is the requirement that the sample must be fresh
enough to contain enzymatic activity. With this in mind, it seems
highly unlikely that detection of certain enzymatic activities,
e.g. by measuring the enzymatic EPSPS activity (Padgette et al.,
1987; 1988), will find broad application in the detection of genetically
