Aldehyde Induced DNA Damage Kits

Aldehydes may be present in cells or tissues as a downstream by-product of phospholipid oxidation via lipid hydroperoxides, or they may result from exposure to carcinogens such as vinyl chloride or urethane. These aldehydes can in turn damage DNA resulting in the formation of 4 different etheno DNA adducts.

Our Aldehyde Induced DNA Damage Assays include ELISA kits to measure two of these etheno adducts in DNA isolated from cells or tissues: ethenoadenosine and ethenocytidine.

If you are interested in studying both damage structures, consider our Ethenoadenosine and Ethenocytidine ELISA Combo Kit.
