Human Cu/Zn Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) catalyzes the reaction between superoxide anions and hydrogen to yield molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. SOD protects the cell against dangerous levels of superoxide. SOD binds copper and zinc ions and is 1 of 3 isozymes accountable for destroying free superoxide radicals in the body. The encoded protein neutralizes supercharged oxygen molecules, which can damage cells if their levels are not controlled.
Recombinant Human Superoxide Dismutase, 15N produced in E.Coli is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 153 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 15.8kDa.
Lyophilized from a 0.2μm filtered concentrated (1mg/ml) solution in PBS, 0.1mM CuCl2 and 0.2mM ZnCl2.
