Abstract

Infective and noninfective strains of Borrelia burgdorferi, along with Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii, possessed a single iron-containing superoxide dismutase (SOD). None of the
Lyme disease spirochetes tested possessed catalase or peroxidase activities. The borrelial SOD was not inducible by growth with increased oxygen concentrations and thus appeared to be produced constitutively.

Infect Immun. 1997 Nov;65(11):4865-8. Research Support, U.S. Gov’t, P.H.S.
