Protein Name & Synonyms:
SOD, Cu/Zn (Erythrocytes)
Suitable for use in Western blot.
Shown to be specific by Western blotting and by gel diffusion techniques. Superoxide dismutases (SOD) are found in all aerobic organisms, their physiological function appears to be to protect cells from free radicals by scavenging superoxide anions. They catalyze the dismutation of superoxide anions to oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. SOD (Cu/Zn) is a cytosolic enzyme. SOD (Cu/Zn) is a dimer of two identical subunits MW 16,000.
Store at 2-8 °C. Slight precipitation can occur on storage, which may be removed by centrifugation and should not affect performance characteristics.
