Abstract

The activity of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, scavenger of the superoxide anion (O 2 dot - ), was assayed in the normal dental pulp of man, dog, rabbit and pig. Very low levels of Cu-Zn-containing superoxide dismutase found in the pulpal tissue investigated support the hypothesis of a relationship between the reactivity of the dental pulp to inflammatory processes and a low protection against oxy-radicals.
