Mammalian nitric oxide synthases.
The enzymes of glutathione synthesis: gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase.
The key step in glutathione synthesis, namely the ATP-dependent synthesis of gamma-glutamylcysteine, is the topic of this review and attention is focused on post-translational regulation.

The present and earlier findings lead to a tentative scheme for the metabolism and translocation of glutathione, gamma-glutamyl amino acids, and related compounds.
Origin and turnover of mitochondrial glutathione.
Mitochondrial glutathione in liver does not arise by intramitochondrial synthesis, but rather from the cytoplasm, by a process characterized by slow net transport and more rapid exchange transport.
