Oxidative DNA damage is important in many tissue injuries and toxic mechanisms. Learn about novel flow and slide methods for its detection utilising a novel
8-oxoguanine binding protein.
Nucleic acids are easily oxidised by free radicals and oxidative DNA damage is involved in many forms of cellular injury such as sun-burn, toxicity, inflammation, aging and many chronic diseases. The importance of monitoring oxidative DNA damage is clear, but previous methods for detecting it have been laborious and have so slowed the development of this field.
In this free webinar, EKF Diagnostics will present a novel sensitive, specific and convenient method for detecting and monitoring oxidative DNA damage - the EKF Diagnostics OxyDNA Test.
Applicable to both flow and slide procedures, the EKF Diagnostics oxyDNA Test utilises a fluorescent binding protein highly specific for DNA containing 8-oxoguanine, a DNA adduct specific for oxidative / free radical damage and which is strongly associated with base mis-pairing and increased levels of mutagenesis and carcinogenesis.
This webinar will be of interest to anyone working the field of DNA damage or genotoxicity, but data will be particularly presented on:
