Use to quantify the activity of total cellular glutathione reductase.
Glutathione reductase (GR, EC# 188.8.131.52) is a flavoprotein that is required for the conversion of oxidized glutathione (GSSG) to reduced glutathione (GSH). At the same time, it oxidizes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH). This universally present enzyme is essential for the maintenance of reduced glutathione (GSH) levels in vivo(1). Reduced glutathione plays an important role in oxidoreduction processes and detoxification of H2O2 and organic peroxides, which are substances produced in large quantities during inflammatory processes in living cells(2).
What's included: 120 mL bottle of GR assay buffer, four vials of GR reagent 1 (contains oxidized glutathione), four vials of glutathione reagent 2 (contains ß-NADPH), 25 mL bottle of GR reagent 3 (contains Tris/HCl), and one vial of QC material. Supplier Certificate of Analysis (CoA) is included with product shipment.
- The kit provides reagents sufficient for 100 (1 mL) manual tests*
- Refrigerate assay buffer between 2 to 4°C; Store NADPH and oxidized glutathione at or below -70°C
