Creative Proteomics has developed a reliable and reproducible method using highly sensitive LC-MS/MS method for the rapid identification and quantification of Isofurans in different sample types, which can satisfy the needs of academic and industrial study in your lab.
Oxidative stress continues to be linked to an ever-increasing number of dysfunctional states in vivo, of which atherosclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, inflammation, and the normal aging process are only a few examples. The deleterious effects of oxidative stress that contribute to disease most frequently manifest as chemical modification of proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids. Assessment of the role of oxidative stress in the pathogenesis or manifestations of any disease state requires a sensitive and specific in vivo marker of oxidant injury.
Some studies recently reported the discovery of isofurans, novel products of free radical-induced peroxidation of arachidonic acid that exhibit favored formation with increasing oxygen concentrations. Parkinson's disease is presented as a disease model involving mitochondrial dysfunction, a situation in which quantification of isofurans can provide a uniquely sensitive indicator of oxidant injury. Measurement of isofurans has also provided unexpected insights into the earliest events in hyperoxic lung injury, an important clinical problem in which measurement of isofurans might prove to be uniquely valuable in the evaluation of approaches to limit this injury.
Currently, a reliable and reproducible method using highly sensitive LC-MS/MS platform for the identification and quantification of isofurans in different sample types has been established by the scientists at Creative Proteomics. The combination of MS instrument and liquid chromatography (LC) can effectively separate target lipid molecules from complex samples.
