Application :

Superoxide dismutase (SOD, EC is a metalloenzyme which can remove superoxide free radical from organisms. SOD catalyzes the disproportionation of the superoxide anion into molecular oxygen or hydrogen peroxide. SOD is not only the scavenging enzyme of superoxide anion , but also the main enzyme involved in the formation of H2O2. So it plays an important role in the biological antioxidant system.
Superoxide anion (O2-) is produced by the xanthine and xanthine oxidase reaction system, and O2- can reduce blue tetrazole to form blue formazan, which has absorbance in 560 nm. Since the absorbance at 560 nm has positive correlation with the amount of superoxide anion, the SOD activity can be determined by measuring the decrease in the color development at 560 nm.
