Oxidative Stress Assay
The ROS and reactive nitrogen compounds have many different activities in biological systems. In response, aerobic organisms create defense mechanisms to avoid oxidative stress. Oxidative stress has recently become the focus of many studies seeking to understand these defense mechanisms and the relationships between oxidative damage and disease or aging processes. To this end, many assay methods have been developed for the superoxide anion, superoxide dismutase, glutathione, glutathione reductase, glutathione peroxidase, DNA damage, 8-oxoguanines, 8-nitroguanosine, and lipid peroxide. Dojindo offers assay kits and reagents related to oxidative stress.
