Glyoxalase II (GloII, hydroxyacylglutathione hydrolase, EC is one of the two enzymes in the Glyoxalase system that is ubiquitously expressed in mammalian, plants and bacteria. The Glyoxalase system is a biological pathway that detoxifies cells by metabolizing α-ketoaldehydes such as methylglyoxal, a cytotoxic byproduct of lipids and glucose metabolism. GloII fulfills the terminal step in the glyoxalase system: It catalyzes the hydrolysis of S-D-lactoyl-glutathione (SLG) to reduced glutathione and D-lactic acid. The alteration of GloII activity in cell growth cycle, cell differentiation, phagocyte activation and diabetes mellitus development of implies this enzyme plays a wide-ranging and important role in cell function and disease progression. Research areas of current interest in Glo-II include diabetes, and cancer therapy. Biovision’s Glyoxalase II Activity Kit utilizes the ability of an active Glo-II to cleave a substrate while producing D-lactate. The produced D-Lactate reacts with the chromophore generating a stable signal that can be easily quantified at 450 nm using a microplate reader. Our assay kit is simple, sensitive and can detect as low as 0.6 mU/ml of Glo-II activity in biological samples
