Effect of thermal stress on glutathione metabolism in human erythrocytes

Abstract

This is the first experiment to investigate the effect of heat and cold stress on glutathione metabolism in human erythrocytes. We immersed men at three different water temperatures for 10 min. At 39°C, no remarkable changes were observed. Levels of glutathione (GSH) decreased from 2.44 (0.14) to 1.80 (0.10) μmol·ml red blood cells−1 [μmol·ml RBC−1; mean… (More)
