Isoprostanes are prostaglandin-like compounds that are produced by free radical mediated peroxidation of lipoproteins. This kit is for the quantification of a representative isoprostane, 15-isoprostane F2t (also known as 8-epi-PGF2α or 8-iso-PGF2α or 8-isoprostane). Levels of 15-isoprostane F2t in biological fluids have been shown to be useful for assessment of oxidant stress in vivo. 15-isoprostane F2t has also been shown to be a potent vasoconstrictor in rat kidneys and rabbit lungs, and plays a causative role in atherogenesis. Elevated isoprostane levels are associated with hepatorenal syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis and carcinogenesis.
This kit can be used for the quantification of free 15-isoprostane F2t in urine, plasma, serum or tissue samples following solid phase extraction of the isoprostane-containing fraction. Instructions are also provided for the quantification of total 15-isoprostane F2t following hydrolysis of phospholipids.
NOTE: Alternatively, urine samples may be analyzed without solid phase extraction using a separate kit (Product #430110) available from Neogen Corporation.
