Copper-Zinc Superoxide Dismutase: A Unique Biological "Ligand" for Bioinorganic Studies.
Valentine, Joan Selverstone; de Freitas, Duarte Mota
Journal of Chemical Education, v62 n11 p990-97 Nov 1985
Discusses superoxide dismutase (SOD) research and the properties of copper, zinc (Cu, Zn)-SOD. Emphasizes the controversy concerning the role of Cu,Zn-SOD and other SOD enzymes as protective agents in reactions involving dioxygen metabolism, and the properties of Cu, Zn-SOD that make it an interesting biological ligand for physical studies of metal-protein interactions.
