Superoxide dismutase (SOD, EC is an enzyme that alternately catalyzes the dismutation (or partitioning) of the superoxide (O−2) radical into ordinary molecular oxygen (O2) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Superoxide is produced as a by-product of oxygen metabolism and, if not regulated, causes many types of cell damage.[2] Hydrogen peroxide is also damaging and is degraded by other enzymes such as catalase. Thus, SOD is an important antioxidant defense in nearly a... [wikipedia]
