Growth Stimulation and Inhibition Effects of 4-Hydroxybenzoic Acid and Some Related Compounds on the Freshwater Green Alga Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata
The effects of 4-HBA on P. subcapitata growth observed in the present study are not expected for planktonic algae in the aquatic environments, because known environmental concentrations are far below the effective concentration range. Expand
Determination of Glutathione and Glutathione Disulfide in Biological Samples Using Acrylonitrile as a Thiol-Blocking Reagent
Biological samples containing glutathione (GSH) and glutathione disulfide (GSSG) were deproteinized by HClO 4 or metaphosphoric acid in the presence of bathophenanthroline disulfate. The totalExpand
Elevation of Glutathione Level in Rat Hepatocytes by Hepatocytes by Hepatocyte Growth Factor viaInduction of γ-Glutamylcysteine Synthetase
The results suggested that the induction of GSH synthesis by HGF is associated with the transcriptional activation of the gamma-GCS gene and the subsequent elevation of gamma- GCS activity. Expand
Change in the redox state of glutathione regulates differentiation of tracheary elements in Zinnia cells and Arabidopsis roots.
It is suggested that reduced states of glutathione suppress TE differentiation in Zinnia elegans, and the process of the redox changes in glutATHione is considered to be controlled via GR activity for TE differentiation. Expand
S-(1,2-Dicarboxyethyl)glutathione and S-(1,2-Dicarboxyethyl)L-cysteine in Lens
S-(1,2-dicarboxyethyl)-glutathione and S-cysteine were determined in lenses of several vertebrates and in rat lens during cataract formation by galactose by high performance liquid chromatography after reaction with 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene. Expand
Ionotropic glutamate receptors expressed in human retinoblastoma Y79 cells
The expression of the glutamate receptors in cultured Y79 clonal human retinoblastoma cells, as model systems of photoreceptors, demonstrated the presence of functional ionotropic receptors in Y79 cells. Expand
Changes in levels of glutathione and related compounds and activities of glutathione-related enzymes during rat liver regeneration
The enzyme activities of cystathionine-β synthase and γ-cystathionease for cysteine synthesis, and ofγ-glutamylcysteine synthetase, which is a limiting enzyme for glutathione synthesis, were clearly increased in regenerating liver, which could be clearly accounted for by the elevation of these enzyme activities.

Dose-dependent biochemical changes in rat central nervous system after 12-week exposure to 1-bromopropane.
The biochemical changes in the cerebrum indicate that long-term exposure to 1-bromopropane has effects on the central nervous system (CNS) of rats and suggests that glutathione depletion and changes in proteins containing SH base as a critical site might be the underlying neurotoxic mechanism of 1-Bromoproane.

Biochemical changes in the central nervous system of rats exposed to 1-bromopropane for seven days.
The results of low levels of gamma-enolase suggested that 1-bromopropane might primarily cause functional or cellular loss of neurons in the cerebrum and cerebellum, and suggested that glutathione depletion or modification to functional proteins containing a sulfhydryl base as a critical site might be the underlying mechanism of 1- bromoprostane neurotoxicity.
