The non-enzymatic reaction of reducing carbohydrates with lysine or arginine side chains and N-terminal amino groups of macromolecules (proteins, phospholipids and nucleic acids) is called the Maillard reaction or glycation. The products of this process, termed advanced glycation end products (AGEs), adversely affect the functional properties of proteins.

Many AGEs have fluorescent and convalent cross-linking properties. Accumulation of AGEs has been thought to play an important role in the pathogenesis of diabetic patients as well as the aging process.

Recent studies have suggested that AGEs can arise not only from sugars but also from carbonyl compounds derived from the autoxidation of sugars and other metabolic pathways. Among different AGEs, there is evidence that glyceraldehyde -derived AGEs are associated with such cytotoxcity.

"Collagen Glycation Assay Kit, Glyceraldehyde" provides rapid detection of fluorescent AGEs and inhibition assay for glycation of collagen by glyceraldehyde. This kit provides sufficient reagents to perform up to 192 assays.

"Collagen Glycation Assay Kit, Glucose / Fructose" is available for a long term examination that reserch early saccharification from fructose.

The availability and convenience of this Kit will contribute to functional foods or development of anti-glycation material in the cosmetic field.

Feature and Advantages

♦ All reagents necessary are included. (plate is not included in a kit)
♦ Simple and easy protocol. It can measure in fluorescence plate leaders (excitation wavelength 370nm, fluorescence wavelength 440nm).
♦ It can assay two pieces of 96well plates.
♦ It is suitable for searching material that controlls collagen saccharification.

AK70 is available for the examination that reserch early saccharification from fructose.It can examine saccharification from fructose for a long term with time.

AK71 is to use glyceraldehyde which is a glucose metabolism intermediate, and a result is provided after a 24-hour short reaction.
