 Mitop2:  Mitochondrial probability - 97  %
  • eukaryotic cells contain a mitochondrial MN-containing enzyme and a cytoplasmic CU-ZN-containing enzyme
  • thiosulfate can rescue the methionine auxothrophie
  • copper is specifically integrated into Sod1p by Lys7p | PUBMED
  • metal binding sites differ from mammalian form
Phenotypes:  Disruption: SOD1 details
  • viable
  • null mutants are unable to grow in 100% oxygen and require methionine and lysine when grown in air
  • null mutant has increased sensitivity to copper
  • mutants are cysteine, methionine, and lysine auxotroph when grown in air
  • extreme sensitive to superoxide anion-generating agent, paraquat
  • sod1 zwf1 double null mutation resultes in a more severe aerobic growth defect
  • copper sensitivity of null mutant is not affected by levels of Pmr1p, Bsd2p, or Atx1p
  • sulfure assimilation pathway is blocked
  • Stress response defects

  • overproduction enhances copper resistance
  • overproduction suppresses the spe2 oxygen-sensitive phenotype
  • Atx1p,Atx2p,Bsd2p and Pmr1 suppresses the sod1 phenotype by chanching the metal ion homeostasis
  • Tkl1p and Zwf1p only rescue the methionine auxothrophie by chanching the NADPH level
  • sod1 growth defect in air is suppressed by elevated levels of manganese or copper
  • mutant can be suppressed by overproduction of Cup1p
  • oxygen-sensitive phenotype and amino acid auxotrophies are suppressed by pmr1 and bsd2 mutations
  • oxygen toxicity phenotype of sod1 mutants can be suppressed by overexpression of CUP1A and ATX1
  • aerobic defect of mutants can be suppressed by growth in high Mn or by mutations in pmr1 or bsd2
  • elimination of mitochondrial respiratory function suppresses the sod2 hyperoxia-hypersensitive phenotype
  • huBcl-2 revers viability defects of sod1 and sod1 sod2 deletion mutants and reduce mutation frequency in sod1-, and sod1 sod2 deletion mutants and SOD1 wild-type cells | PUBMED
