Description

General description

A mucolytic agent and thio-based antioxidant. Increases the cellular pool of free-radical scavengers. Inhibits HIV replication. Prevents apoptotic death of neuronal cells. Antidote for acetaminophen poisoning. May serve as a substrate for microsomal glutathione transferase. Induces apoptosis in human and rat smooth muscle cells.
