SOD2 (EC 1.15.1.1), a metalloenzyme that catalyzes the disproportionation ofsuperoxide radicals to molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide, is important in cellular defense against oxygen toxicity (reviewed in ref. 5). In pea (Pisum sativum L.) leaf, three forms of the enzyme exist, all ofwhich are nuclear encoded and catalyze the same dismutation reaction. The Cu/Zn SOD is the predominant form ofthe enzyme, with one isozyme found in the chloroplast stroma and the other in the cytosol. The Mn… CONTINUE READING
