The DetectX® Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) Activity Kit is designed to quantitatively measure SOD activity in a variety of samples. The assay measures all types of SOD activity, including Cu/Zn, Mn, and FeSOD types. A bovine erythrocyte SOD standard is provided to generate a standard curve for the assay and all samples should be read off of the standard curve. Samples are diluted in our specially colored Sample Diluent and added to the wells. The Substrate is added followed by Xanthine Oxidase Reagent and incubated at room temperature for 20 minutes. The Xanthine Oxidase generates superoxide in the presence of oxygen, which converts a colorless substrate in the Detection Reagent into a yellow colored product. The colored product is read at 450 nm. Increasing levels of SOD in the samples causes a decrease in superoxide concentration and a reduction in yellow product. The results are expressed in terms of units of SOD activity per mL.
