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...

COX (ovine/human) Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit
COX (ovine/human) Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit

Item number: Cay560131-96

Cyclooxygenase (COX, also called Prostaglandin H Synthase or PGHS) enzymes contain both cyclooxygenase and peroxidase activities. COX catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins (PGs), thromboxanes, and prostacyclins, the conversion of arachidonic acid to PGH2. It is now well established that...
Application: COX inhibitor screening

TBARS (TCA Method) Assay Kit
TBARS (TCA Method) Assay Kit

Item number: Cay700870-96

Lipid peroxidation is a well-established mechanism of cellular injury in both plants and animals and is used as an indicator of oxidative stress in cells and tissues. Lipid peroxides, derived from PUFAs, are unstable and decompose to form a complex series of compounds, which include reactive carbonyl compounds, such...

Glutathione Assay Kit
Glutathione Assay Kit

Item number: Cay703002-96

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...

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...

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...

Nitrate/Nitrite Fluorometric Assay Kit
Nitrate/Nitrite Fluorometric Assay Kit

Item number: Cay780051-2

Nitric Oxide (NO) is produced in trace quantities by neurons, endothelial cells, platelets, and neutrophils in response to homeostatic stimuli. This NO is scavenged rapidly (t½ = 4 s) and acts in a paracrine fashion to transduce cellular signals. NO interacts with the HEME prosthetic group of guanylate cyclase,...

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...

Glucose Colorimetric Assay Kit
Glucose Colorimetric Assay Kit

Item number: Cay10009582-192

Glucose, a monosaccharide (or simple sugar), is the most important carbohydrate in biology. Transported via the blood stream, it is the primary source of energy for the body's cells. Glucose level is tightly regulated in the human body. Failure to maintain blood glucose in the normal range leads to conditions of...
