Modifying Polyacrylamide Background Color for the Nitroblue Tetrazolium-Based Superoxide Dismutase Staining Assay
TLDR
A straightforward technique to reliably adjust the background color of polyacrylamide gels without compromising assay efficacy is described, which has already been employed to analyze SOD protein expression levels in extracts of Escherichia coli.

Superoxide dismutase. An enzymic function for erythrocuprein (hemocuprein).
TLDR
The demonstration that O2·- can reduce ferricytochrome c and tetranitromethane, and that superoxide dismutase, by competing for the superoxide radicals, can markedly inhibit these reactions, is demonstrated.
Superoxide dismutase from escherichia coli B. A new manganese-containing enzyme.
TLDR
The bacterial superoxide dismutase, which catalyzes the disproportionation of univalently reduced oxygen, has now been purified from Escherichia coli and was found to contain manganese.

TLDR
Findings support a proposal that catechols react rapidly with superoxide anion to yield a new oxidizing species and inhibition by Tiron of the oxygen-dependent catalytic reduction of electron acceptors effectively prevents the oxygen radical from participating in slower oxidation–reduction processes.
