Changes in the superoxide radical and superoxide dismutase levels in the uterus of Rattus norvegicus during the estrous cycle and a possible role for superoxide radical in uterine oedema and cell proliferation at proestrus.

Abstract

Superoxide anion radical, a radical whose toxicity is well documented, is present in the uterus of albino rat. The cyclic changes that it undergoes during the reproductive cycle are also illustrated. An inverse correlation is seen between the levels of superoxide radical and the enzyme dismutating it, i.e., superoxide dismutase (EC 1.15.1.1), which is also… (More)
