Product Description

This kit contains 10 mg each of the following nitric oxide donors: SIN-1 (00221), SNAP (00222), S-nitrosoglutathione (00223), spermine NONOate (00224), and DEA-NONOate (00225).

  • SIN-1, SNAP, and SNOG can generate nitric oxide and superoxides
  • NONOate conjugates can generate a controlled release of nitric oxide in a pH-dependent manner
  • Stimulates cyclic GMP production

Fluorescent calcium indicators and these nitric oxide generators are often used to probe the cellular reactions to cell stress, NO, and trace intracellular calcium. NO concentration is most frequently assessed by measuring nitrite level using the Griess Reagent.

    Griess Reagent Kit

    A chemical solution that is used for absorbance-based nitrite detection in biological samples such as cell lysates or tissue perfusates.


    Generate nitric oxide and form superoxides spontaneously under physiological conditions and is often used to probe the cell stress response and stimulate calcium-independent synaptic vesicle release.


    Releases nitric oxide spontaneously under physiological conditions. Useful for reliable and controllable NO generation in solution.

    Spermine NONOate
