Activity loss of glutathione synthesis enzymes associated with human subcapsular cataract.

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess the activities of the two enzymes required for glutathione synthesis, gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase and glutathione synthetase, in various forms of human cataracts. METHODS The Cooperative Cataract Research Group cataract classification method and standard enzyme assay procedures were used. RESULTS An inverse relationship was shown… (More)
