About this book


Free radicals and reactive oxidizing agents are now recognized as causes or contributing factors in inflammation and other disease states and have become a major focus of interest in pharmacology, toxicology, physiology, and biochemistry. In Methods in Biological Oxidative Stress, expert researchers detail their best experimental methods for detecting free radicals and reactive oxygen species or their byproducts. The techniques range from established standard protocols to advanced methodologies using HPLC, mass spectrometry, and electron paramagnetic resonance. The HPLC techniques are applied to the electrochemical measurement of protein oxidation products, particularly nitrotyrosine and dityrosine, and to the electrochemical detection of DNA oxidation products. There are also mass spectrometry methods for measuring lipid oxidation products. Each technique is described in step-by-step detail to ensure robust results, with many presented by the experimenters who have led their development. Useful notes explain the pitfalls to avoid and the chemical principles underlying each method.
Authoritative and highly practical, Methods in Biological Oxidative Stress provides laboratory researchers and technicians a unique collection of standard, easy-to-use experimental methods for oxidative stress bioanalysis, plus cutting-edge instrumental techniques using HPLC, mass spectrometry, and EPR spectrometry.
