Summary

A very promising glutamate decarboxylase electrode, which has linear response range of 5.6 × 10™5 ™ 1.2 × 10™2 mol/L, Nernstian slope of 50 mV/decade, detection limit of 3.2 ×10™5 mol/L and response time less than 3 min, has been designed to observe and evaluate quantitatively the effect of magnetized water on enzyme activities by potentiometric enzyme electrode method. It was found that the activity of glutamate decarboxylase can increase by 30 % in magnetized water. The mechanism of increased enzyme activity was discussed in the present paper. Such a new finding will probably lead to some new explanations for the physiological and biological mechanism of the effect of magnetized water on living organisms, thus providing a new approach to the study of the effect of magnetized water.
