Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

At both SARs the free enzyme in solution did not show any effects induced by microwave irradiation. The enzyme loaded into liposomes exhibits a significant decrease of 13% in the reaction velocity induced by microwave exposure at 5.6 mW/g. At SAR of 2.8 mW/g no significant decrease was observed.
The data demonstrate that microwave exposure could influence functional properties of ascorbate oxidase only when this enzyme is loaded into lipidic bilayer.
