Gene: Sod2 (superoxide dismutase 2, mitochondrial) Mus musculus
Symbol: Sod2
Name: superoxide dismutase 2, mitochondrial
Description: Exhibits superoxide dismutase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; apoptotic signaling pathway; and regulation of cellular biosynthetic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Used to study Canavan disease; Leigh disease; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 1; congestive heart failure; and dilated cardiomyopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); diabetes mellitus (multiple); endocrine gland cancer (multiple); lipid storage disease (multiple); and optic nerve disease (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; heart; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SOD2 (superoxide dismutase 2); PARTICIPATES IN hypertension pathway; Huntington's disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-catechin; (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; (R)-lipoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
