Superoxide dismutases are metalloenzymes involved in protecting cells from oxidative damage arising from superoxide radical or reactive oxygen species produced from superoxide. Examples of enzymes containing Cu, Mn, and Fe as the redox-active metal have been characterized. Recently, a SOD containing one Ni atom per subunit was reported. The amino acid sequence of the NiSOD deduced from the nucleotide sequence of the structural gene sodN from Streptomyces seoulensis is reported and has no… CONTINUE READING
