Xanthine Oxidase Activity Assay Kit
For rapid, simple & high throughput-adaptable colorimetric/fluorometric detection of very low xanthine oxidase levels in biological samples.
Xanthine oxidase (XO) is present in appreciable amounts in the liver and jejunum in healthy individuals and Plays a role in oxidative stress as well as several diseases such as various liver disorders. Therefore, determination of serum XO level serves as a sensitive indicator of acute liver damage such as jaundice.
The PromoKine Xanthine Oxidase Activity Assay Kit provides a fast, easy and accurate method to determine XO in a variety of samples. In the assay, XO oxidizes xanthine to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) which reacts stoichiometrically with OxiRed Probe to generate a colorimetric (at λ = 570 nm) and a fluorometric (at Ex/Em = 535/587 nm) Signal whose intensity is proportional to the XO Content.
