The Superoxide Dismutase Detection Kit
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme found in all living cells. This enzyme, in particular, catalyzes the dismutation of superoxide radical into hydrogen peroxide and molecular oxygen. Consequently, this becomes an important defense mechanism against superoxide radical toxicity. Oxidative stress that is dependent upon superoxide radical can account for a number of acute and chronic disease states. Hence, using the Superoxide Dismutase Detection Kit.
What is oxidative stress?
This question is important for why we would want to detect these levels in the human body. Oxidative stress refers to the toxic side of oxygen and metabolism. Consequently, it’s the imbalance of oxidants and antioxidants. As Professor Helmut Sies has noted in his research, this leads to disruption in redox biology. This imbalance and “stress” evokes biological stress responses.
