Biological Description

Alternative Names 8-OH-dG ELISA Kit, 8OHG ELISA Kit, 80G ELISA Kit, 8 hydroxyguanine ELISA Kit, 8-OHdG ELISA Kit, DNA Damage ELISA Kit
Research Areas Cancer, Cell Signaling, Oxidation, Oxidative Stress, Post-translational Modifications
Scientific Background 8-hydroxy-2-deoxy Guanosine (8-OH-dG) is produced by the oxidative damage of DNA by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and serves as an established marker of oxidative stress (1-4). Hydroxylation of guanosine occurs in response to both normal metabolic processes and a variety of environmental factors (i.e., anything that increases reactive oxygen and nitrogen species). Increased levels of 8-OH-dG are associated with the aging process as well as with a number of pathological conditions including cancer, diabetes, and hypertension(5-9). In complex samples such as plasma, cell lysates, and tissues, 8-OH-dG can exist as either the free nucleoside or incorporated in DNA. Once the blood enters the kidney, free 8-OH-dG is readily filtered into the urine, while larger DNA fragments remain in the bloodstream. Because of the complexity of plasma samples, urine is a more suitable matrix for the measurement of free 8-OH-dG than plasma. Urinary levels of 8-OH-dG range between 2.7-13 ng/mg creatine, while plasma levels of free 8-OH-dG have been reported to be between 4-21 pg/ml as determined by LC-MS (10-11).
