  • Escherichia coli growing anaerobically respond to NO3- with a 3-fold induction of the iron-containing superoxide dismutase. Mutants lacking nitrate reductase do not show this response. Anaerobically grown cells also contain an inactive form of the manganese-containing superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) which can be activated by addition of Mn(II) salts in the presence of acidic guanidinium chloride, followed by dialysis against neutral buffer. Direct addition of Mn(II) to a neutral solution of the… CONTINUE READING
