Csuperoxide anion radical; Hydrogen peroxide
There are several chemical ways of generating superoxide anion radical (.O2-); in the biochemical and medical research fields an enzymatic method using xanthine oxidase is widely used (Figure 1).
Reagents used are Hypoxanthine solution (1 mM) and xanthine oxidase, Fenton reaction.
1. Take hypoxanthine solution (1 mM). For cell culture, use phosphate-buffered saline or foetal calf serum-free medium instead of usual culture medium.
2. Add xanthine oxidase (0.01-100 munits/mL).
3. Incubate for an appropriate time determined experimentally.
4. For cell culture, remove the hypoxanthine solution by aspiration and add the culture medium. The cells are harvested when ready.
If xanthine oxidase is used H2O2 and .O2- will be produced. If transition metal ions or their redox active complexes are also present hydroxyl radical will be produced (Fenton reaction). To remove H2O2 add catalase to the reaction.
