  author={Anders Behndig and Birgit Svensson and Stefan L Marklund and K. -E. Karlsson},
  journal={Investigative ophthalmology & visual science},
  volume={39 3},
PURPOSE The authors determined the levels of the secreted, interstitially located extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD), the cytosolic copper- and zinc-containing SOD (CuZn-SOD), and the mitochondrial manganese-containing SOD (Mn-SOD) in tears, cornea, sclera, aqueous humor, lens, vitreous body, and retina of the human eye. METHODS SOD enzymatic activity was determined by the direct spectrophotometric method using KO2. The amounts of EC-SOD and CuZn-SOD protein were also determined… CONTINUE READING
