Purification and properties of superoxide dismutase from Drosophila melanogaster.

Abstract

The major superoxide dismutase ("slow" electromorph) of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, has been purified to homogeneity. This enzyme contains 2 Cu2+ and 2 Zn2+/molecule. The ultraviolet absorption spectrum indicates a lack of tryptophan. This enzyme has a molecular weight of 32,000 and is composed of two subunits of equal size, which are joined by… (More)
