Glutathione (L-gamma-Glutamyl-L-Cysteinylglycine) appears as the major nonprotein thiol compound in yeasts. Recent advances have shown that glutathione (GSH) seems to be involved in the response of yeasts to different nutritional and oxidative stresses. When the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is starved for sulfur or nitrogen nutrients, GSH may be mobilized to ensure cellular maintenance. Glutathione S-transferases may be involved in the detoxification of electrophilic xenobiotics. Vacuolar… CONTINUE READING
