Superoxide dismutases (SODs) protect cells from damage by oxygen free radicals. Manganese (Mn) SOD is preferentially induced in terminally differentiating cells; induction of copper-zinc (CuZn) SOD is more closely associated with postnatal exposure to environmental sources of oxygen free radicals. The purpose of this study was to investigate ontogenetic changes in immunoreactivity for MnSOD and CuZnSOD relative to the expression of markers of neuronal and chemosensory differentiation in… CONTINUE READING
