Superoxide dismutases (SODs) are antioxidant enzymes that play a critical role in the polymerization of lignin monomers. Although current research has indicated that SODs are involved in plant growth and development, information on s in pear () and their function in lignin formation is scarce. In this study, 25 s, containing three kinds of plant SODs (Cu/Zn-SODs, Mn-SODs, and Fe-SODs), were identified from three Rosaceae species, and 11 of these genes were found in pear. Read More
