Superoxide dismutases (SODs) are enzymes that catalyze the dismutation of the superoxide anion to molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide.
BQCkit’s SOD Activity Assay kit is recommended to quantified this reaction by the reduction of WST-1. Additionally, hydrogen peroxide is destructed by catalase by dismutation as a defense mechanism. Actually, it is related to antioxidant capacity.
BQCkit’s Catalase Activity Assay consists of a colorimetric reaction, which is proportional to this enzymatic activity.
