Our results indicate that the various methods for measurement of superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity differ considerably as regards sensitivity. The activity difference may be particularly striking in the determination of the SOD activities of crude homogenates, because of the large number of disturbing factors. We consider the epinephrine-adrenochrome method to be the most suitable for measurement of the SOD activities of crude homogenates and purified enzyme preparations.
