Determination of superoxide dismutase mimetic activity in common culinary herbs.
Under conditions of oxidative stress, the removal of superoxide, a free radical associated with chronic inflammation, is catalysed by superoxide dismutase (SOD). Thus in addition to acting as an antioxidant, SOD may also be utilized as an anti-inflam

catalase mimetics on human breast cancer cells.
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as superoxide and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) have been implicated in development and progression of breast cancer. In the present study, we have evaluated the effects of the superoxide dismutase (SOD) mimetic MnTmPyP

Species-specific antifungal activity of blue light.
Fungal pathogens represent a significant threat to immunocompromised patients or individuals with traumatic injury. Strategies to efficiently remove fungal spores from hospital surfaces and, ideally, patient skin thus offer the prospect of dramatical

LSU network hubs integrate abiotic and biotic stress responses via interaction with the superoxide dismutase FSD2.
In natural environments, plants often experience different stresses simultaneously, and adverse abiotic conditions can weaken the plant immune system. Interactome mapping revealed that the LOW SULPHUR UPREGULATED (LSU) proteins are hubs in an Arabido

Lamellar superoxide dismutase of isolated chloroplasts.
Photooxidation of hydroxylamine to nitrite by spinach (Spinacia oleracea L. and sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris L.) chloroplast lamellae in the presence of autoxidable electron acceptors is inhibited by either solubilized or membrane-bound superoxide dismut

Acute ketamine impairs mitochondrial function and promotes superoxide dismutase activity in the rat brain.
Ketamine is often associated with altered mitochondrial function and oxidative stress. Nevertheless, limited data are still available regarding the in vivo action of ketamine in mitochondrial bioenergetics and redox state. Accumulating evidence suppo

Assessment of antioxidants status and superoxide dismutase activity in HIV-infected children.
This study aims to assess the nutritional status of selenium, copper and zinc; and also the erythrocyte superoxide dismutase activity of HIV-infected children compared to a control group.

Meta-Analyses of Manganese Superoxide Dismutase Activity, Gene Ala-9Val Polymorphism, and the Risk of Schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a complex and disabling psychiatric disorder, and tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a severe adverse drug effect occurring in 20% to 40% of schizophrenic patients chronically treated with typical neuroleptics. Previous studies suggested tha

Cardiovascular effects of copper deficiency on activity of superoxide dismutase in diabetic nephropathy.
Copper (Cu) is essential both for its role in antioxidant enzymes, like Cu/zinc (Zn) superoxide dismutase (SOD) and ceruloplasmin, as well as its role in lysyl oxidase, essential for the strength and integrity of the heart and blood vessels. With suc

Communities in the iron superoxide dismutase amino acid network.
Amino acid networks (AANs) analysis is a new way to reveal the relationship between protein structure and function. We constructed six different types of AANs based on iron superoxide dismutase (Fe-SOD) three-dimensional structure information. These
