Characterization of transgenic mice that overexpress both copper zinc superoxide dismutase and catalase.


Transgenic mice overexpressing both Cu/ZnSOD and catalase [Tg(SOD1/CAT) +/o] were used to evaluate the effects of overexpression of both genes against oxidative stress. Characterization of these transgenic mice revealed that catalase or Cu/ZnSOD activities were two- to fourfold higher in the tissues of transgenic mice compared to wild-type mice, and the… (More)
