Superoxide dismutase (SOD) isozymes are compartmentalized in higher plants and play a major role in combating oxygen radical mediated toxicity. In this review we evaluate the mode of action and effects of the SOD isoforms with respect to oxidative stress resistance, correlating age, species, and specificity of plants during development.
