Reactive oxygen species (ROS) is
produced in metabolic and physiological processes, and harmful oxidative
reactions may occur in organisms that remove them via enzymatic and
nonenzymatic antioxidative mechanisms. Under certain conditions, the increase
in oxidants and decrease in antioxidants cannot be prevented, and the oxidative
or in over 100 disorders, develops .
Antioxidant molecules prevent or inhibit
these harmful reactions. Serum (or plasma) concentrations of different
antioxidants can be measured in laboratories separately, but the measurements
are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, and require complicated techniques.
Because the measurement measurement of different antioxidant molecules
separately is not practical and their antioxidant effects are additive, the
total antioxidant capacity of a sample is measured, and this is called total
antioxidant capacity (TAC) , total antioxidant activity (TAA) , total
antioxidant power (TAOP) , total antioxidant status (TAS) , total
antioxidant response , or other synonyms.
In the test, antioxidants in the sample reduce
dark blue-green colored ABTS radical to colorless reduced ABTS form. The change
of absorbance at 660 nm is related with total antioxidant level of the sample.
The assay is calibrated with a stable antioxidant standard solution which is
traditionally named as Trolox Equivalent that is a vitamin E analog .
