  • Function
    Destroys superoxide anion radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems.
  • Involvement in disease
    Genetic variation in SOD2 is associated with susceptibility to microvascular complications of diabetes type 6 (MVCD6) [MIM:612634]. These are pathological conditions that develop in numerous tissues and organs as a consequence of diabetes mellitus. They include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy leading to end-stage renal disease, and diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic retinopathy remains the major cause of new-onset blindness among diabetic adults. It is characterized by vascular permeability and increased tissue ischemia and angiogenesis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the iron/manganese superoxide dismutase family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Nitrated under oxidative stress. Nitration coupled with oxidation inhibits the catalytic activity.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion matrix.
