Effect of L-dopa methylester and glutathione depletion on murine B16BL6 melanoma growth in vitro.


The cytotoxic and growth-inhibitory effect of levodopa methylester (LDME) in murine B16BL6 (BL6) melanoma cells after glutathione (GSH) depletion was studied in vitro. Pretreatment of BL6 cells with 50 microM buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) depleted GSH content by nearly 90% and enhanced the growth-inhibitory effect of even a minimally cytotoxic concentration… (More)
