Identification and purification of a second form of Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase from Schistosoma mansoni.


Our laboratories previously isolated a putative extracellular or membrane-associated Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn-SOD) gene, designated a signal peptide-containing (SP) Cu/Zn-SOD, from Schistosoma mansoni. SOD activity was thus investigated throughout the life cycle of S. mansoni and found in all stages: eggs, miracidia, cercariae, schistosomula, lung… (More)
