Comparison of lens biochemistry and structure between BSO-treated and glucocorticoid-treated developing chick embryos.

Abstract

In this paper various changes in glutathione level, which were influenced by balance of its synthesis, degradation, transport and utilization, were analysed in chick embryos administered with glucocorticoid (GC) or buthionine sulfoximine (BSO; an inhibitor of glutathione synthesis). When BSO (30 mumol egg-1) was administered twice to chick embryos on day 14… (More)
