The sequence of an mRNA encoding superoxide dismutase (EC 1.15.1.1) of Schistosoma mansoni has been determined. The deduced amino acid sequence which it encodes shows 40 to 45% homology with the amino acid sequences of the cytosolic superoxide dismutase from 10 other species, as well as similar homology with the human extracellular form. Hybridization selection of the mRNA by cDNA clone pSM38 and in vitro translation of this mRNA have consistently produced a protein of 20,000 Da and… CONTINUE READING
