The Fe- and Mn-containing superoxide dismutases catalize the same reaction and have almost superimposable active sites. Therefore, the details of their mechanisms have been assumed to be similar. However, we now show that the pH dependence of Escherichia coli MnSOD activity reflects a different active site proton equilibrium in (oxidized) Mn(3+)SOD than the(More)
