What is Glutathione Reductase assay used for?

Glutathione Reductase is required for the regeneration of reduced glutathione which is important for normal cellular metabolism. This enzyme is often discussed in association with Glutathione Peroxidase, which requires reduced glutathione for activation. Glutathione Reductase is responsible for maintaining levels of reduced glutathione which has many important functions in the cell. Glutathione plays a role in protein folding and the maintenance of reduced pools of vitamin C and E. Reduced levels of this enzyme have been described in several diseases.
