Mammalian thioredoxin reductases: TR-03 and TR-03B
2017.07.08

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.

The rat TR-03 and TR-03B enzymes show full cross-reactivity with all mammalian thioredoxins as well as other Trx like E.coli Trx1.

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.
