    ZELLX® oxidative stress testing solutions

    June 23rd 2021

    Leading life sciences research materials provider ZELLX® offers a wide range of colorimetric and fluorometric assays to quantify both enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants in oxidative stress pathways.

    These assays play a key role in toxicity testing and improving efficacy.

    Oxidative stress

    Oxidative stress is one of the most common types of toxicity. It is defined by an imbalance between the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the ability of biological systems to detoxify ROS or its related damage.

    Many types of chemical, physical, and microbial agents can potentially induce oxidative-mediated stress in cells and tissues by damaging the biological components, including proteins, lipids, and DNA.

    It has further been established that oxidative stress reactions can interfere with many essential biological processes such as phagocytosis (immunity and inflammation), cell respiration (mitochondria), metal metabolism, lipid synthesis, lysosomes, xenobiotic biotransformation of organic compounds and cellular signaling.

    The role of antioxidants

    A series of antioxidant compounds function to reduce the damaging effects of ROS. These compounds are either produced endogenously in the human body or can be obtained exogenously via nutrients.

    Endogenous antioxidants are classified into two subgroups:

    • Enzymatics such as dismutase, reductase, catalase, peroxidase, etc.
    • Non-enzymatic, such as glutathione, bilirubin, metallothioneins, and uric acid.

    However, as the free radical content is often higher than the capacity of endogenous antioxidants to detoxify, it is necessary to obtain some antioxidants from external sources, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E, to balance the disequilibrium.

    ZELLX® Oxidative Stress Assays

    For measuring oxidative stress, ZELLX® provides different colorimetric-based assays to evaluate the amount of both enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants in oxidative stress pathways. These include:
