This protocol describes a procedure for determining glutathione (GSH) and glutathione disulfide (GSSG) concentrations in blood and other tissues. Artifactual oxidation to GSSG of 5–15% of the GSH found in a sample can occur during deproteination of biological samples with any of the commonly used acids, with consequent marked overestimation of GSSG. This can be prevented by derivatizing GSH with the alkylating agent N-ethylmaleimide (NEM) to form GS-NEM before acid deproteination, followed by… Expand

Optimized Protocol for the In Situ Derivatization of Glutathione with N-Ethylmaleimide in Cultured Cells and the Simultaneous Determination of Glutathione/Glutathione Disulfide Ratio by HPLC-UV-QTOF-MS
TLDR
An optimized protocol for the in situ derivatization of GSH with N-ethylmaleimide (NEM) is presented to prevent GSH autooxidation, and thus to preserve the GSH/GSSG ratio during sample preparation, and showed high repeatability with intra-run and inter-run coefficients of variation. Expand
A direct comparison of methods used to measure oxidized glutathione in biological samples: 2-vinylpyridine and N-ethylmaleimide
TLDR
It is concluded that N-ethylmaleimide, when coupled with a simple solid-phase extraction procedure, is more accurate for the determination of GSSG. Expand
A sensitive method for the analysis of glutathione in porcine hepatocytes
TLDR
For the first time GSH and GSSG are analyzed in porcine hepatocytes by LC-MS/MS yielding a reference level of GSHand its oxidized form, glutathione disulfide, which is applicable in all soft tissues and cell suspensions, essentially with no modification. Expand
Rapid Method for the Quantification of Reduced and Oxidized Glutathione in Human Plasma and Saliva.
TLDR
It is shown in this paper that the stability of the total glutathione content (GSH + GSSG) and GSH in saliva is significantly greater than in plasma, encouraging the development of noninvasive saliva sensing. Expand
The determination of hepatic glutathione at tissue and subcellular level.
TLDR
The monochlorobimane-HPLC-fluorescent method can be advised for the determination of GSH from pharmacologically and toxicological relevant cell organelles and liver tissue whilst addition of monoch Lorimane to the homogenisation buffer prevented the autoxidation of G SH. Expand
Assessment of glutathione/glutathione disulphide ratio and S-glutathionylated proteins in human blood, solid tissues, and cultured cells.
TLDR
This review paper provides an up-to-date critical overview of the application of the most relevant analytical, morphological, and proteomics approaches to detect and analyse GSH, GSSG and PSSG in mammalian samples as well as discusses their current limitations. Expand

TLDR
The main analytical and pre-analytical problems related to the artificial oxidation of the sulfhydryl (SH) group of GSH that occur during sample manipulation are described. Expand

Blood glutathione disulfide: in vivo factor or in vitro artifact?
TLDR
GSSG is present in healthy human blood at low concentrations (2-6 micromol/L), and most published data on GSSG may be affected by artifacts. Expand
Assay for quantitative determination of glutathione and glutathione disulfide levels using enzymatic recycling method
TLDR
The spectrophotometric/microplate reader assay method for glutathione (GSH) can assay GSH in whole blood, plasma, serum, lung lavage fluid, cerebrospinal fluid, urine, tissues and cell extracts and can be extended for drug discovery/pharmacology and toxicology protocols to study the effects of drugs and toxic compounds on glutATHione metabolism.

Assay of glutathione, glutathione disulfide, and glutathione mixed disulfides in biological samples.
TLDR
The sum of the reduced and oxidized forms of glutathione can be determined by using a kinetic assay in which catalytic amounts of GSH or GSSG and glutATHione reductase bring about the continuous reduction of 5,5′-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) by nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH).

TLDR
It is reported here that 2-vinylpyridine is a much better reagent for the derivitization of glutathione, and it is demonstrated that the total glutATHione concentration in mouse plasma is substantially higher than generally reported and that glutathion disulfide constitutes less than 30% of the totalglutathione present.
