Anti-inflammatory activity of superoxide dismutase conjugated with sodium hyaluronate

Superoxide dismutase (SOD) from bovine erythrocytes was conjugated with sodium hyaluronate (HA) with a mean molecular weight of 106 to have greater anti-inflammatory activity in vivo. Amino groups of SOD were coupled with carboxyl groups in the hyaluronate molecule using 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide. The HA-SOD conjugate was composed of 1… CONTINUE READING
