Compound Summary for: CID 5359597

Superoxides

Also known as: Superoxide; dioxidanidyl; Superoxide anion; Hyperoxid; dioxide(1-); superoxide radical anion; superoxide radical; superoxyde; HYPEROXIDE
Molecular Formula: O2-   Molecular Weight: 31.9988   InChIKey: OUUQCZGPVNCOIJ-UHFFFAOYSA-M
Highly reactive compounds produced when oxygen is reduced by a single electron. In biological systems, they may be generated during the normal catalytic function of a number of enzymes and during the oxidation of hemoglobin to METHEMOGLOBIN. In living organisms, SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE protects the cell from the deleterious effects of superoxides.   From: MeSH
