GO term:superoxide anion generation
Synonym: superoxide release
GO id:GO:0042554
Definition:The enzymatic generation of superoxide, the superoxide anion O2- (superoxide free radical), or any compound containing this species, by a cell in response to environmental stress, thereby mediating the activation of various stress-inducible signaling pathways.
