General description

Glutathione peroxidase (GPX) represents an enzyme family with peroxidase activity whose main biological role is to protect the organism from oxidative damage. It helps prevent lipid peroxidation of cellular membranes by removing free peroxide in the cell.

Features and Benefits

  • Assay uses only 10 μL of sample.
  • Linear detection range 40 to 800 U/L GPX activity.

Suitability

The kit is suitable for the quantitative determination of glutathione peroxidase activity and evaluation of drug effects on GPX activity in biological samples.

Principle

The Glutathione Peroxidase Assay Kit directly measures NADPH consumption in the enzyme coupled reactions. The measured decrease in optical density at 340 nm (A340) is directly proportional to the enzyme activity in the sample.
