[Coral-List] Antioxidants in Symbiodinium and hosts

I am looking for publications that have assessed enzymatic antioxidants 
such as SOD, APX, CAT in hosts that harbor Symbiodinium, ideally under 
light and temperature stress on the proteomic level. Even better if they 
have been measured simultaneously in both partners.

The studies I have found so far are listed below. It would be very much 
appreciated, if you can add to that list.

Thanks a lot!
