Glutathione Reductase Assay Kit

Product Overview


This assay is based on the oxidation of NADPH to NADP+ catalyzed by a limiting concentration of glutathione reductase. One GR activity unit is defined as the amount of enzyme catalyzing the reduction of one micromole of GSSG per minute at pH 7.6 and 25°C. As shown in the above reaction, one molecule of NADPH is consumed for each molecule of GSSG reduced. Therefore, the reduction of GSSG is determined indirectly by the measurement of the consumption of NADPH, as demonstrated by a decrease in absorbance at 340 nm as a function of time.
