Abstract

A study was made in a number of parallel experiments of the superoxide dismutase activity change in human placentae in relation to their age. It was found that the enzyme activity calculated for a given wet weight increased with the age of the placenta. The increasing amount of enzyme presumably protects the fetus from the destructive effect of the O2- radical.
