Creatinine (urinary) Colorimetric Assay Kit
Creatinine (urinary) Colorimetric Assay Kit

Item number: Cay500701-96

Creatine is synthesized in kidney, liver, and pancreas and transported to muscle and brain where it is phosphorylated to phosphocreatine. Some free creatine in muscle is converted to creatinine. The amount of creatinine produced is proportional to an individual's muscle mass. In the absence of renal disease, the excretion rate of creatinine in an individual is relatively...
Application: Creatinine measurement

COX Fluorescent Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit
COX Fluorescent Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit

Item number: Cay700100-192

Cyclooxygenase (COX, also called Prostaglandin H Synthase or PGHS) is a bifunctional enzyme exhibiting both COX and peroxidase activities. The COX component converts arachidonic acid to a hydroperoxy endoperoxide (PGG2), and the peroxidase component reduces the endoperoxide to the corresponding alcohol (PGH2), the precursor of PGs, thromboxanes, and prostacyclins. It is now...

Uric Acid Assay Kit
Uric Acid Assay Kit

Item number: Cay700320-96

Uric acid (urate) is the end product of human purine metabolism and is mainly excreted in urine. Many factors, including genetic components and acquired factors, such as obesity and alcohol consumption, influence serum uric acid concentrations. Hyperuricemia induces or facilitates gout, kidney stones, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and renal and cardiovascular disease,...

Lipase Activity Assay Kit
Lipase Activity Assay Kit

Item number: Cay700640-96

Lipases perform essential roles in the digestion, transportation, and processing of dietary lipids by controlling the clearance of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins from the circulation. Manipulating lipolysis has therapeutic potential in the metabolic disorders frequently associated with obesity. Cayman's Lipase Activity Assay provides a fluorescence-based method for detecting...

Glutathione Assay Kit
Glutathione Assay Kit

Item number: Cay703002-480

Cayman's GSH assay kit utilizes a carefully optimized enzymatic recycling method, using glutathione reductase for the quantification of GSH. The sulfhydryl group of GSH reacts with DTNB (5,5'-dithio-bis-2-nitrobenzoic acid, Ellman's reagent) and produces a yellow colored 5-thio-2-nitrobenzoic acid (TNB). The mixed disulfide, GSTNB (between GSH and TNB) that is concomitantly...
Application: GSH quantification

Glutathione Peroxidase Assay Kit
Glutathione Peroxidase Assay Kit

Item number: Cay703102-96

Glutathione peroxidase (GPx) catalyzes the reduction of hydroperoxides, including hydrogen peroxides, by reduced glutathione and functions to protect the cell from oxidative damage. With the exception of phospholipid-hydroperoxide GPx, a monomer, all of the GPx enzymes are tetramers of four identical subunits. Each subunit contains a selenocysteine in the active site which...
Application: GTx activity detection

Superoxide Dismutase Assay Kit
Superoxide Dismutase Assay Kit

Item number: Cay706002-96

Significant amounts of superoxide dismutase (SOD) in cellular and extracellular environments are crucial for the prevention of diseases linked to oxidative stress. Mutations in SOD account for approximately 20% of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) cases. SOD also appears to be important in the prevention of other neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's,...
Application: SOD detection

Catalase Assay Kit
Catalase Assay Kit

Item number: Cay707002-96

Catalase (EC 1.11.1.6, 2H2O2 oxidoreductase) is an ubiquitous antioxidant enzyme that is present in most aerobic cells. Catalase (CAT) is involved in the detoxification of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), a reactive oxygen species (ROS), which is a toxic product of both normal aerobic metabolism and pathogenic ROS production. This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of two molecules of...
Application: Catalase activity determination

sPLA2 Assay Kit
sPLA2 Assay Kit

Item number: Cay765001-96

Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) catalyzes the hydrolysis of phospholipids at the sn-2 position yielding a free fatty acid and a lysophospholipid. The release of arachidonic acid from membrane phospholipids by PLA2 is believed to be a key step in the control of eicosanoid production within the cell. The Cayman Chemical secretory PLA2 (sPLA2) Assay kit provides an accurate and...

Nitrate/Nitrite Colorimetric Assay Kit
Nitrate/Nitrite Colorimetric Assay Kit

Item number: Cay780001-192

The Cayman Chemical Nitrate/Nitrite Assay Kit provides an accurate and convenient method for measurement of total nitrate/nitrite concentration in a simple two-step process. The first step is the conversion of nitrate to nitrite utilizing nitrate reductase. The second step is the addition of the Griess Reagents which convert nitrite into a deep purple azo compound....
Application: Nitrate detection, Nitrite detection

TBARS Assay Kit
TBARS Assay Kit

Item number: Cay10009055-96

Oxidative stress in the cellular environment results in the formation of highly reactive and unstable lipid hydroperoxides. Decomposition of the unstable peroxides derived from PUFAs results in the formation of malondialdehyde (MDA), which can be quantified colorimetrically following its controlled reaction with thiobarbituric acid. The measurement of these 'Thiobarbituric...
