Phylogenetic analysis of SOD proteins between cucumber and 7 other plant species showed that the SODs could be divided into two groups of Cu/ZnSODs and FeMnSODs, and these two groups could be further divided into 5 subgroups with robust statistical support, which is consistent with the results of previous reports [6, 10, 11, 35].
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an antioxidant enzyme, which plays an important role in process of scavenging ROS through catalyzing the dismutation of superoxide anion to [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] and molecular oxygen [4].
The concentration, SOD activity, and GST activity of the purified proteins were determined by BCA protein assay kit (Thermo, USA), SOD, and GsT reagent kits (Jiangsu, China), respectively.
I am thinking of putting together a programme on how to improve your life by being a 'Miserable Sod'.
Perched on the crest of the Allegheny range, the Sods promises some of the wildest land east of the Mississippi.
Sod is often exposed to an adverse environment characterized by high temperature and lack of irradiance after harvest and during transport.
Cu/Zn SOD and Mn SOD gene expression [messenger RNA (mRNA)] were measured using TaqMan (TM) Gene Expression Assays (primer sequences available upon request) according to the manufacturer's instructions (Applied Biosystems).
Within the last 10 years, Bionov has focused its R&D strategy on the exploration of the mechanism of action of oral administration with SOD B, and according to Julie Carillon, pre-clinical research manager at Bionov, results "have shown that an SOD B oral supplementation is linked with the induction of endogenous antioxidant enzymes expression--SODs, catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPx)--in different animal models." Four major scientific publications, including an expert review, were published in 2013 to detail this new mechanism of action.
In this study, by examining the activity and mRNA expressions of Mn SOD and Cu-Zn SOD in retinal neuron of rats with diabetes, we hope to demonstrate the relationship of retinal neurons apoptosis and expression/activity of Mn SOD in rats at the early phase of diabetes.
The aim of this article is estimate the efect of free radical production via production of lipid peroxide product andactivity of the main antioxidant enzyme, SOD, in athletes and compared this results with matched control group.
Because sod plants can only reproduce by rhizomes, natural selection pressure in the sod habitat would favor genotypes with a greater tolerance for frequent defoliation and greater long-term survivorship.
