Reduced glutathione (GSH) protects cells against oxidative injury and maintains a range of vital functions. To study GSH content in human neuronal cell cultures, thiol-sensitive fluorescent techniques requiring a small number of cells may be of great value, but their...

Glutathione S-transferases (GST) catalyzing the conjugation of reduced glutathione to a vast range of xenobiotics including insecticides were characterized in the whitefly Bemisia tabaci. GST activities were determined in susceptible and resistant strains of B. tabaci towards artificial substrates, i.e....

Reduced glutathione (GSH) protects cells against injury by oxidative stress and maintains a range of vital functions. In vitro cell cultures have been used as experimental models to study the role of GSH in chemical toxicity in mammals; however, this...

A rapid and facile colony assay has been developed for catalytically active enzymes in combinatorial cDNA libraries of mutated glutathione transferases (GST), expressed in Escherichia coli. The basis of the method is the conjugation of glutathione (GSH) with the fluorogenic...

We have investigated what limits demand-driven de novo glutathione (GSH) biosynthesis in green Arabidopsis suspension culture cells. GSH is the most abundant low-molecular weight thiol in most plants and can be quantified using monochlorobimane to fluorescently label GSH in live...
