Fully Automated Paraoxonase Activity Measurement Kit
Paraoxonase-1 (PON1) is an high density lipoprotein (HDL)-associated enzyme with antioxidant and antiatherogenic functions,
protecting lipoproteins against oxidative modification. It also catalyzes the hydrolysis of organophosphates such as paraoxon and aromatic carboxylic acid esters of fatty acids. It has been shown that serum paraoxonase activity decrease in diabetes mellitus, coronary artery disease, hypercholesterolaemia, iron deficiency anemia, hepatitis, cirrhosis, prostate cancer, tuberculosis and inflammations.
