Versatile peroxidase (EC, VP, hybrid peroxidase, polyvalent peroxidase) is an enzyme with systematic name reactive-black-5:hydrogen-peroxide oxidoreductase.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(1) Reactive Black 5 + H2O2 oxidized Reactive Black 5 + 2 H2O
(2) donor + H2O2 oxidized donor + 2 H2O

Versatile peroxidase is a hemoprotein.
