Manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) is one of the major enzymes responsible for the defense against oxidative damage due to reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the mitochondria. The present study aimed to produce and evaluate the genetically engineered manganese superoxide dismutase protein. A recombinant plasmid containing DNA segment coding Mn-SOD(More)
This photophysical study characterizes the generality of intermolecular electronic interactions present within nanomaterials derived from self-assembling oligopeptides with embedded π-conjugated oligophenylenevinylene (OPV) subunits stilbene and distyrylbenzene that in principle present two distinct β-sheet motifs. Two different synthetic approaches led to(More)
