The mechanism underlying the elevation of intracellular glutathione (GSH) in RAW 264.7 cells exposed to low-level sodium nitroprusside (SNP) was investigated by measuring the expression of mRNA for gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase (gamma-GCS), the rate-limiting enzyme of de novo GSH synthesis, and the GSH content. A significant elevation of expression of(More)
The effect of low-dose nitric oxide (NO) on gamma-ray-induced micronucleus (MN) frequency was investigated in RAW264.7 cells. Treatment of RAW264.7 cells with 0.25 mM sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a chemical NO donor, reduced the frequency of micronuclei induced by 5 Gy gamma rays by 43 to 45% between 3 and 12 h post-treatment. This effect was blocked by(More)
