Superoxide dismutases (SOD) are a class of enzymes that catalyze the dismutation of superoxide into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. As such, they are an important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen. There are three major families of superoxide dismutase, depending on the metal cofactor: Cu-Zn (which binds both copper and zinc), Fe and Mn types (which bind either iron or manganese), and finally the Ni type, which binds nickel.
Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): Does not require pre-treatment (trypsin or pronase) prior to staining or antigen retrieval using heat treatment methods prior to staining of paraffin sections.
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen sections
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
