The ability of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, as well as other tissues, to cope with reactive oxygen species (ROS) efflux in pathological events is determined partly by epithelial antioxidant levels. These levels are comprized of tissue antioxidant enzymes and low molecular weight antioxidants (LMWA). While glutathione levels and the activity of enzymatic antioxidants along the GI tract have been studied, the contribution of the overall LMWA to the total antioxidant capacity has not yet been… CONTINUE READING
