Title: Preliminary neutron diffraction analysis of challenging human manganese superoxide dismutase crystals

Abstract

Superoxide dismutases (SODs) are enzymes that protect against oxidative stress by dismutation of superoxide into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide through cyclic reduction and oxidation of the active-site metal. The complete enzymatic mechanisms of SODs are unknown since data on the positions of hydrogen are limited. Here, we present, methods for large crystal growth and neutron data collection of human manganese SOD (MnSOD) using perdeuteration and the MaNDi beamline at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Furthermore, The crystal from which the human MnSOD data set was obtained is the crystal with the largest unit-cell edge (240 Å) from which data have been collectedvianeutron diffraction to sufficient resolution (2.30 Å) where hydrogen positions can be observed.
