      Detection principle

      Glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) can promote the reaction of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and reduced glutathione to produce H2O and oxidized glutathione (GSSG). The activity of glutathione peroxidase can be expressed by the rate of enzymatic reaction. The activity of glutathione can be calculated by measuring the consumption of reduced glutathione. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and reduced glutathione can react without catalysis of GSH-Px, so the portion of GSH reduction by non-enzymatic reaction should be subtracted. GSH can react with dinitrobenzoic acid to produce 5-thio-dinitrobenzoic acid anion, which showed a stable yellow color. Measure the absorbance at 412nm, and calculate the amount of GSH.

      Dilution of sample

      The optimal sampling volume are different for different species, also are different for different sample type. It is recommended to take 2~3 samples to do a pre-experiment, diluting a series of diluent and determine the dilution factor when the inhibition ratio is 10%~50% (the optimal inhibition ratio is the range of 25%~45%.) before formal experiment.

      The recommended dilution factor for different samples is as follows (for reference only):

      Sample type

      Dilution factor

      Human serum


      Mouse serum


      Rat serum


      10% Mouse brain tissue homogenate


      10% Rat liver tissue homogenate


      HepG2 cell homogenate (5 mgprot/mL)


      10% Plant tissue homogenate


      Note: The diluent is normal saline (0.9% NaCl) or PBS (0.01 M, pH 7.4).
