Poster Information
Abstract: Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of superoxides into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide by disproportionation. It is widely found in various animals, plants and microorganisms and is an important antioxidant. Superoxide dismutase protects cells exposed to oxygen, which can remove superoxide anion radicals in the body and effectively resist the damage of oxygen free radicals to organisms.

Classification and Distribution

SOD is a kind of protease that scavenges free radicals, plays an important role in the survival of aerobic organisms, and is the key to the defense of oxygen toxicity. So far, scientists have isolated SOD from organisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, algae, insects, fish, plants and mammals. These SODs can be classified into at least three types: Cu/Zn-SOD, Mn-SOD, and Fe-SOD, depending on the metal auxiliary group.
Summary: Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is one kind of metalloenzyme, it can be used in antioxidization, fight against senium and improve the immunologic function. Superoxide dismutase(SOD) can be used in health care food, cosmetics and beer, etc.References: abuse »
