SOD1, superoxide dismutase, is one of two isozymes that destroy free superoxide radicals that are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems. The SOD1 isozyme is a soluble homodimer found in the cytoplasm. It converts naturally-occuring but harmful superoxide radicals to molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. The other isozyme is a mitochondrial protein. Defects in SOD1 are the cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 1, a familial form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
