Electrophoretic analysis of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii extract revealed at least 4 distinct superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity bands as well as several additional minor bands. Among them, one was deduced to be Fe-type and the other three Mn-type based on their susceptibility to KCN and H2O2. The Fe-SOD, which occupied about 40% of the total soluble activity, was purified to homogeneity using ammonium sulfate fractionation followed by DEAE-cellulose, hydroxyapatite, and Superdex 75 gel-permeation chromatography. The 40-kDa native enzyme was composed of two identical 20-kDa subunits with a low shoulder of absorption at ̃350 nm. The NH2-terminal amino acid sequence determined up to residue 29 showed a high homology to those of Fe-SOD from Arabidopsis thaliana, Glycine max, and Nicotiana plumbaginifolia.
