Disease relevance of sodB

  • A SOD-deficient mutant was obtained by insertional inactivation of sodB in B. pertussis, confirming that there is only one SOD in this organism [1].
  • Thiobarbituric acid (TBA)-reactive substances (TBA.R) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity were then monitored in the exudate on the acute phase response in this inflammatory model [2].

High impact information on sodB

  • The nucleotide sequence of sodB predicted a 21-kDa protein with homology to manganese- and iron-containing SODs from other organisms [1].
  • In an attempt to identify additional regulatory mechanisms that may modulate virulence gene expression, we investigated the effect of various environmental stimuli on the stability of the bvg-regulated vrg6 and the bvg-independent sodB transcripts [3].
