Furthermore, I postulate that monooxygenase-dependent toluene degraders, in absence of external oxygen, can be active via self-sustained production of oxygen by nitric oxide dismutation
SOD catalyzes the dismutation
of superoxide radicals and is said to be the primary enzyme that responds oxygen radicals.
6) is an enzyme of the antioxidant defense used as a biomarker of oxidative stress that can be induced by a wide range of contaminants including organic xenobiotics and heavy metals in order to protect organisms against oxidative stress by catalyzing the dismutation
of hydrogen peroxide [H.
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an endogenous enzyme responsible for the dismutation
of superoxide radicals.
Superoxide anion can also undergo dismutation
to form hydrogen peroxide ([H.
One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme needed to exhibit 50% dismutation
of the superoxide radical.
SOD is involved in the dismutation
of super oxide radical to either molecular oxygen or to hydrogen peroxide.
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) catalyzes the dismutation
of superoxide into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide.
Catalase employs a two-electron transfer in the dismutation
of hydrogen peroxide ([H.
The latter can undergo dismutation
to form hydrogen peroxide.
of aldehydes by a bacterial enzyme.
In this experiment, also treating with the extracts after alcohol treatment could restore the depleted CAT and SOD activities almost to the normal condition Super oxide dismutase catalyzes the dismutation
of super oxide into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide .
