Gene: Sod2 (superoxide dismutase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Sod2
Name: superoxide dismutase 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including manganese ion binding activity; oxygen binding activity; and superoxide dismutase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to ethanol; hydrogen peroxide biosynthetic process; and removal of superoxide radicals. Localizes to mitochondrial nucleoid. Used to study esophagus adenocarcinoma; hypertension; intestinal disease; and myocardial infarction. Biomarker of several diseases, including adult respiratory distress syndrome; artery disease (multiple); bladder neck obstruction; congenital diaphragmatic hernia; and hyperhomocysteinemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); diabetes mellitus (multiple); lipid storage disease (multiple); optic nerve disease (multiple); and rheumatic disease (multiple). Orthologous to human SOD2 (superoxide dismutase 2); PARTICIPATES IN hypertension pathway; Huntington's disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (+)-pilocarpine; (+)-schisandrin B.
Type: protein-coding
