Effects of N-acetylcysteine and dithiothreitol on glutathione and protein thiol replenishment during acetaminophen-induced toxicity in isolated mouse hepatocytes.
Isolated mouse hepatocytes were incubated with 1.0 mM acetaminophen (AA) for 1.5 h to initiate glutathione (GSH) and protein thiol (PSH) depletion and cell injury. Cells were subsequently washed toExpand
