Manganese-containing superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) is one of the most important superoxide dismutases found in many eukaryotes and bacteria. In this study, the full-length cDNA of mitochondrial manganese superoxide dismutase from Pleurotus ostreatus (PoMn-SOD) was obtained. It contained 776 nucleotides with an open reading frame (ORF) of 663 bp, encoding(More)
Proteins are subjected to modification by reactive oxygen species (ROS), and oxidation of specific amino acid residues can impair their biological functions. Methionine as a sulfur-containing amino acid is easily oxidized to methionine sulfoxide (MetSO). The modified methionine can be repaired by methionine sulfoxide reductase (Msr), an enzyme that reverses(More)
