Glutathione Reductase Assay Kit (ab83461) is a highly sensitive, simple, direct and HTS-ready colorimetric assay for measuring GR activity in biological samples. In the assay, GR reduces GSSG to GSH, which reacts with 5, 5'-Dithiobis (2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) to generate TNB2- (yellow color, ?max = 405 nm). The assay can detect 0.1-40 mU/ml GR in various samples.

Glutathione Reductase (GR, EC 126.96.36.199) catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of oxidized glutathione (GSSG) to reduced glutathione (GSH), which plays an important role in the GSH redox cycle that maintains adequate levels of reduced GSH. A high GSH/GSSG ratio is essential for protection against oxidative stress.
