Glutathione Assay Kits

Glutathione (GSH) is an important intracellular tripeptide and a known antioxidant.  The thiol group within the cysteine residue acts as a reducing agent to assist reduction enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase to convert the highly reactive hydrogen peroxide to water.  In the process, the glutathione is oxidized to glutathione disulfide (GSSG).  The reverse reaction takes place using the glutathione reductase enzyme and NADPH as the reducing agent to reduce GSSG to GSH.  Trevigen offers several different glutathione assay kits depending on which reaction you wish to study.

The Glutathione Reductase Assay Kit (Cuvette) measures levels of glutathione reductase in cell lysates, erythrocyte lysates, and tissue homogenates.  This is the cuvette version of the 7513-500-K.

The HT Glutathione Assay Kit (Total Glutathione) quantifies the amount of glutathione in mammalian cells, tissue, blood, plasma and other bodily fluids using a 96 well plate.

The HT Glutathione Peroxidase Assay Kit measures the amount of glutathione peroxidase in plasma, erythrocyte lysates, tissue homogenates, and cell lysates using a 96 well plate.

The HT Glutathione Reductase Assay Kit (96 Well Plate) measures levels of glutathione reductase in cell lysates, erythrocyte lysates, and tissue homogenates.  This is the 96 well plate version of the 7510-100-K.
