Significance of Cu/Zn-Superoxide Dismutase Levels in Hemodialysis Patients: A Mini Review

Abstract

Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn-SOD) is an enzyme that is ubiquitously present in the cytoplasm and causes dismutation of superoxide radicals, therefore Cu/Zn-SOD is primarily used as an antioxidant marker. Levels of Cu/Zn-SOD are higher in the serum of hemodialysis patients than in serum of healthy volunteers. The increase of serum Cu/Zn-SOD levels is… (More)
