Alterations in superoxide dismutase, glutathione, and peroxides in the plasmodial slime mold Physarum polycephalum during differentiation.

Abstract

Changes in the level of antioxidant defenses and the concentration of free radical by-products were examined in differentiating (M3cVII and LU897 X LU863), non-differentiating (LU887 X LU897), and heterokaryon microplasmodia of the slime mold Physarum polycephalum during spherulation in salts-only medium. As differentiation proceeded, superoxide dismutase… (More)
