There are two types of homologous enzymes catalysing the dismutationof the superoxide radical – Cu–Zn superoxide dismutases, and manganese oriron superoxide dismutases. In the latter two forms there is a highpercentage of identity in the primary structures, and the tertiarystructures are very similar particu-larly in the areas of the activesite and in the residues responsible for the formation of the dimer.The quaternary structure of the dimer is also highly conserved.However, it has been found… CONTINUE READING
