RESUMEN

Superoxide dismutase, as one of the enzymes of cells' antioxidant defensive system, catalyzes superoxide anion-radical (O2-) dismutation with O2 and H2O2 forming. The influence of such transition metal compounds, as FeSO4, FeCl3, MnCl2, NiCl2, and CoCl2 on superoxide dismutase activity of sulfur-reducing Desulfuromonas acetoxidans bacteria has been investigated. Maximal activity of the investigated enzyme has been observed accordingly under the influence of 1.0 mM of NiCl2, 2.0 mM of CoCl2 and MnCl2 on the second day and under the influence of 1.0 mM of FeCl3 and FeSO4 respectively, on the third day of growth in comparison with control samples. An increase of incubation time and concentration of metal compound in the medium caused the inhibition of superoxide dismutase activity.
