SOD2 / Mn-SOD Molecule Background
Superoxide dismutase [Mn], mitochondrial (SOD2),a member of the iron/manganese superoxide dismutase family, can form a homotetramer and bind one manganese ion per subunit. The expression of SOD2 is regulated by KRIT1. Mutations in SOD2 gene have been associated with idiopathic cardiomyopathy (IDC), sporadic motor neuron disease, and cancer. Furthermore, Mn-SOD (SOD2) activity is essential to achieve optimal training-induced protection against both ischemia/reperfusion(IR)-induced cardiac arrhythmias and infarction.
