Cytoprotection by glycine against hypoxia-induced injury in cultured hepatocytes.


The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism of cytoprotection by glycine against hypoxia-induced hepatocellular injury. Incubation under hypoxic conditions (95% N2 and 5% CO2) for 5 h induced about 50% cell death, but administration of glycine remarkably reduced hepatocellular death without preventing a loss in ATP content. Anaerobic glycolysis… (More)
