In this study, it was aimed to determine antioxidant enzyme activity in apricot fruit. In the studies carried out, apricot has been reported to have protective effects such as antioxidant, anti-aging, anticancer and antivirus.It also protects brain cells. Apricot kernel also contains some substances with antioxidant properties. In other studies carried out, it has been also reported to be beneficial to heart health. The antioxidant property of this fruit is quite high. Its structure contains many vitamins, minerals and enzymes. For this purpose, it is aimed to determine the activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD) which is one of the enzyme activities thought to be present in apricot fruit. Furthermore, oxidative stress indicator and the level of malondialdehyde (MDA), which is the end product of lipid peroxidation, were determined. In this study, antioxidant enzyme activity and lipid peroxidation were determined by spectrophotometric method. Then, the results obtained were analyzed by using multidimensional statistical methods and the results were discussed in a multidimensional manner.
