Gamma-glutamyl transferase deficiency results in lung oxidant stress in normoxia.


gamma-Glutamyl transferase (GGT) is critical to glutathione homeostasis by providing substrates for glutathione synthesis. We hypothesized that loss of GGT would cause oxidant stress in the lung. We compared the lungs of GGT(enu1) mice, a genetic model of GGT deficiency, with normal mice in normoxia to study this hypothesis. We found GGT promoter 3 (P3… (More)
