Incubation of human whole blood for 24 h at 37 degrees C in the presence of 100-400 microg/dl lead chloride or lead acetate caused a concentration-dependent decrease in the level of reduced glutathione up to 40%. Similarly, the activities of glutathione reductase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione S-transferase were decreased up to 25%, 50%, and 19… CONTINUE READING
