Effect of glutathione deprivation on lens metabolism.

Abstract

1-Chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB) was used to conjugate glutathione (GSH) through the catalysis of lens glutathione S-transferase without the untoward oxidative damage to the lens mediated by GSH oxidants. A 2 hr treatment of the rat lens with 1 mM CDNB resulted in a nearly total depletion of lens GSH with neither formation of GSSG nor glutathione-protein… (More)
