DESCRIPTION

Uric acid, a byproduct of purine metabolism, has both positive and negative aspects in metabolism. While elevated levels are associated with gout, a painful joint condition, uric acid serves essential functions, acting as an antioxidant, neutralizing harmful free radicals, and protecting cells from oxidative stress. It contributes to the regulation of blood pressure by modulating the production of nitric oxide, a vasodilator. Despite its physiological benefits, excessively high uric acid levels can lead to gout and other metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. AkrivisBio’s Uric Acid assay is a simple, sensitive means of measuring uric acid levels in a variety of biological samples with a sensitivity below 1 nmole.
