Both DNA and RNA are damaged by oxidation during aging and in a variety of disease states including cancer. The repair processes that are initiated to correct this damage release multiple oxidized guanine species into the urine. Cayman Chemical has developed this immunoassay for the measurement of DNA/RNA oxidative damage that detects all three oxidized guanine species; 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine from DNA, 8-hydroxyguanosine from RNA, and 8-hydroxyguanine from either DNA or RNA. Some commercial vendors offer immunoassays that detect only 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine, and not the other two molecules. The advantage of the Cayman kit is that it captures a more complete set of biologically relevant products of oxidative damage than do assays that are restricted to analysis of only 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine. However, because Cayman’s kit recognizes more than 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine, it is not valid to compare the results from the Cayman ELISA Kit to an LC/MS analysis of 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine. The ELISA value will always be significantly higher than LC/MS because the ELISA also detects 8-hydroxyguanosine and 8-hydroxyguanine.

Needed but not supplied: Please download the kit booklet to verify if UltraPure Water (Milli-Q or equivalent) or any other components are needed for this assay.

The the level of 8-OH-dG has been estimated in cultured cells after extracting total DNA. What is the best way to normalize the data for accurate comparison between treatments?

It is more meaningful to normalize measured values to the total number of cells, or the amount of purified DNA rather than as a concentration of 8-OH-dG only.

Has the 8-hydroxy-2-deoxy Guanosine EIA Kit been validated for muscle tissue or whole blood (leukocyte DNA) samples?

The 8-hydroxy-2-deoxy Guanosine EIA Kit has not been validated for those exact sample types, but has been validated for cell lysates and tissue homogenates in general. Theoretically, the kit should work just fine with any purified DNA sample.
