Human Cytokine/Growth Factor/Chemokines Sample Spec sheets (subject to change without notice):


Cat#: RDI-RECSOD           $438.00/500ug

          RDI-RECSOD-1       $781.00/1 milligram

Formulation: 10 mg/ml in water (no additive is added).

Description: Cu/Zn Human Superoxide Dismutase is a stable dimer of identical subunits with a combined molecular mass of 32,000 daltons. This enzyme dismutes the superoxide radical to molecular oxygen. This enzyme has been expressed in yeast and purified using sequential chromatography steps. The hSOD is acetylated at its N-terminus.

Source: Human SOD is produced in genetically engineered yeast, and purified by ionic exchange chromatography.

MW: 32 kDa (dimeric protein)

Biological Activity: The specific activity of SOD is 260 U/mg. The enzymatic activity of human SOD is determined by calorimetrically determining the oxidation of a chromophore. This was performed with a commercially available kit called SOD-525 from Biooxytech S.A. (Cedex,France).

Purity: The material has been judged to be >98% pure, as   determined by non-reduced SDS gel electrophoresis.

Stability: Human recombinant SOD is stable at -20'C for   several months.

Storage: Upon receipt, the material should be stored at -20'C.
