SOD Assay Kit
Kit contains for convenient measurement of activity of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) by colorimetric method.
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is one of the most important antioxidative enzymes. The highly sensitive SOD Assay Kit utilizes WST-1 that produces a water-soluble formazan dye upon reduction with the superoxide anion. The rate of the reduction with a superoxide anion is linearly related to the xanthine oxidase (XOD) activity, and is inhibited by SOD. Therefore, the inhibition activity of SOD can be determined by a colorimetric method.
