Background of 3-hydroxykynuenine / 3-OHKYN antibody
3-hydroxykynurenine, a chromophore metabolite of tryptophan, acts as UV protectant and an antioxidant in vertebrate lens. This compound reacts with proteins to induce cross-linking and chromophore adducts.
Detection of 3'OHKYN in modified BSA using NB 100-597. 10 second ECL exposure. Lane 1: BSA (-) Lane 2: BSA (+)
