- Dismutase - Superoxide dismutases (SOD, EC 220.127.116.11) are a class of enzymes that catalyze the dismutation of superoxide into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. As such, they are an important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen. One of the exceedingly rare exceptions is Lactobacillus plantarum and related lactobacilli, which use a different mechanism.
- Chelation - Chelation (pronounced /kiːˈleɪʃən/) is the formation or presence of two or more separate bindings between a polydentate (multiple bonded) ligand and a single central atom.  Usually these ligands are organic compounds, and are called chelants, chelators, chelating agents, or sequestering agents
- Sequester - to remove or withdraw into solitude or retirement; seclude
- Cytochrome P450 - The cytochrome P450 family (officially abbreviated as CYP) is a large and diverse group of enzymes. The function of most CYP enzymes is to catalyze the oxidation of organic substances. The substrates of CYP enzymes include metabolic intermediates such as lipids, steroidal hormones as well as xenobiotic substances such as drugs.
