|Reconstitution||We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.|
|Stability & Storage||Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
- 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
- 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
- 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

|Background||Superoxide dismutase catalyzes the reaction between superoxide anions and hydrogen to yield molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase also named as SOD1, is an enzyme encoded by the SOD1 gene in humans, located on chromosome 21. The SOD1 binds Cu and Zn ions and is one of three SODs responsible for destroying free superoxide radicals in the body. It has been shown to interact with CCS and Bcl-2. The malfunction of SOD1 may increase the risk of illnesses like age-related muscle mass loss (sarcopenia), early development of cataracts, macular degeneration, thymic involution, hepatocellular carcinoma, shortened lifespan, keratoconus and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.|
