Glutathionylation and GRX activity easy to study
2013.05.30

Glutathionylation (the formation of a mixed disulfide with GSH)can be studied by products from IMCO. We also have a new unique kit for assays of glutaredoxin activity.

IMCO has DiEGSSG and GRX-04 as a products for studying glutathionylation. DiEGSSG or dieosine-diglutathione disulfide is fluoresent and can be used to label a protein┤s SH-group. The glutathionylated protein is visible in ultraviolet light on gelelectrophoresis and can be specifically deglutahionylated by E. coli GRX1C14S mutant protein ( GRX-04) in the presence of 1mM GSH and glutathione reductase plus NADPH. The reaction can be followed by the high fluorescence of released E-GSH(eosine-glutathione).
For easy and highly sensitive measurements of glutaredoxin activity use FkGRX-01 containing all components for pmol sensitivity in microtiter plate assays in 100 Ál volumes. Determine eg Grx activiy in 40 Ál plasma using the kit. Grx1 activity is a novel marker of oxidative stress.

New kit for high sensitivity GSH measurements

Measuring GSH in plasma and serum requires high sensitivity and is complicated by oxidation in samples upon storage. IMCO has developed a new kit for high sensitivity fluorescent determinations of GSH, GSSG and glutathionylated products.

Mammalian thioredoxin reductases: TR-03 and TR-03B

Mammalian thioredoxin reductase 1 (TrxR) contain an essential seleocycteine residue encoded by the stop codon UGA. This makes recombinant expression in E.coli a challenge. IMCO now has preparations of rat TrxR with unsurpassed specific activity.
