Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide comprised of three amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid and glycine. It is involved in the development and maintenance of protein disulfide bonds , the transport of amino acids across cell membranes, and in detoxification. Since glutathione contains a thiol group, it serves as a major endogenous antioxidants in cells preventing damage by neutralizing reactive oxygen species such as free radicals and peroxides. Monitoring reduced and oxidized glutathione in biological samples is a useful tool for evaluating the redox and detoxification status of cells and tissues against oxidative and free radical mediated cell injury. While few reagents and assay kits are commercially available for quantifying glutathione, they are hindered by their lack of sensitivity and tedious protocols. Amplite™ Fluorimetric Glutathione assay offers a convenient and ultra-sensitive method for the quantification of glutathione in biological samples.
