dismutase

dismutase

 [dis-mu´tās]
any of a group of enzymes that have the ability to catalyze the reaction of two molecules of the same compound to yield two molecules in different oxidation states.

dis·mu·tase

(dis-myū'tās),
Generic name for enzymes catalyzing the reaction of two identical molecules to produce two molecules in differing states of oxidation (for example, superoxide dismutase) or of phosphorylation (for example, glucose-1-phosphate phosphodismutase).
