Pharmaceutical effect of manganese porphyrins on manganese superoxide dismutase deficient mice.


Mice lacking manganese-superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) activity exhibit typical pathology of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). In the present study, the structure-activity relationship between the water-soluble manganese (Mn) porphyrin with SOD activity and the in vivo pharmaceutical effect on DCM is reported. The Mn-SOD-deficient mice were treated with Mn… (More)
