Research Area Spotlight: Oxidative Stress Assay Kits

news July 09 2021

What is Oxidative Stress?

Oxidative stress is broadly defined as an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), or free radicals, and their elimination by cellular antioxidant defenses. The consequences of uncontrolled oxidative stress can lead to oxidative damage to biomolecules critical to cellular structure and function.1,2

Fortunately, powerful oxidative stress response mechanisms have evolved to protect organisms from the damaging effects of oxidative pressure in biological systems. However, uncontrolled oxidative stress is implicated in a wide variety of pathophysiology and age-related diseases, and understanding the role of oxidative stress in health and disease is a common goal of many biomedical research programs.3

Arbor Assays provides tools to measure the status and activity of key oxidative stress biomarkers. For example, our glutathione and hydrogen peroxide assay kits are the easiest, most sensitive assay kits available to help researchers to better monitor oxidative stress mechanisms and responses.
