Assays for possible markers of oxidative stress measurement include assays that measure oxidation of lipids, proteins, DNA and a group of antioxidants.
- Lipid peroxidation assays: lipid hydroperoxides, TBARS, MDA, isoprostanes, various HETEs.
- Protein oxidation assays: protein carbonyls, various tyrosine products, methionine sulfoxidation.
- DNA oxidation assays: 8-OH-dG, oxidation changes by the Comet assay, M1G.
- Antioxidants: Ascorbic acid, tocopherols, GSH, GSSG, uric acid, TAC (total antioxidant capacity)
