Goat anti malondialdehyde antibody recognizes malondialdehyde. Malondialdehyde (MDA) is a natural product formed in all mammalian cells as a product of lipid peroxidation and serves as a biomarker of oxidative stress (Nielsen et al 1997).
MDA is toxic and has been implicated in aging mutagenesis, carcinogenesis, diabetic nephropathy and radiation damage. Increased expression of MDA has been reported in the brains of Alzheimer's patients (Greilberger et al. 2008).
Serum - liquid
Antisera to malondialdehyde were raised by repeated immunisations of goats with highly purified antigen.
