Document Title:Hep G2 Hepatocyte Glutathione Assay
Scope:This protocol describes the analysis of human hepatocarcinoma cells (Hep G2) for reduced and oxidized glutathione, following treatment with nanoparticle formulations, as part of the NCL in vitro preclinical characterization cascade. A shift from reduced to oxidized glutathione isindicative of oxidative stress, while a decrease in the overall reduced glutathione pool is indicative of conjugative metabolism or impaired synthesis (1). This protocol utilizes a colorimetric method for glutathione determination.
