Comparison of N-acetyl-L-cysteine and L-cysteine in respect to their transmembrane fluxes

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to compare cysteine and N-acetyl-L-cysteine in respect to their transmembrane fluxes and find out which one is a better available precursor for the cells and thus better supports the intracellular glutathione synthesis. Cysteine can directly participate in glutathione synthesis, whereas N-acetyl-L-cysteine must be… (More)
