Deficiency of GSH (BSO model) demonstrates the need for cellular protection from endogenous ROS. The pathology of various diseases is often associated with ROS and oxidative stress. The several methods for modulating cellular GSH levels presented in this chapter offer selective tools to study mechanisms and offer potential therapy of human diseases associated with GSH deficiency and oxidative stress. 
Prodrug Approach for Increasing Cellular Glutathione Levels
TLDR
Different strategies for increasing GSH levels by supplying reversible bioconjugates able to cross the cellular membrane more easily than GSH and to provide a source of thiols for GSH synthesis are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Treatment with an inhibitor, buthionine sulfoximine (BSO), of gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase leads to decreased cellular GSH levels, and its application can provide a useful experimental model of GSH deficiency. Expand
Antioxidant Use in Humans - Successes and Failures 175
TLDR
Reports indicate that antioxidative materials, such as antioxidative enzymes, antioxidants, and chelating agents, could be useful for antioxidative diseases. Expand
Analysis of glutathione: implication in redox and detoxification.
TLDR
The present review proposes an analysis of the current knowledge about the methodologies for measuring glutathione in human biological samples and their feasibility as routine methods in clinical chemistry, and elucidates the fundamental role of glutATHione in pathophysiological conditions and its implication in redox and detoxification process. Expand
Glutathione: Systemic Protectant Against Oxidative and Free Radical Damage
The tripeptide thiol glutathione (GSH) has facile electron-donating capacity, linked to its sulfhydryl (—SH) group. Glutathione is an important water-phase antioxidant and essential cofactor forExpand
Physiological and pathological aspects of GSH metabolism
The antioxidant glutathione is found in low levels in diseases in which increasing evidence implicate oxidative stress in the development of the disease, for example retinopathy of prematurity,Expand
Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) and its Major Flavonoids — Potential Against Oxidative Stress-Induced Conditions
TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive data on the current knowledge of the biological and chemotherapeutic activity of rooibos and its major flavonoids to establish its activity and utility as a human chemopreventive and therapeutic agent. Expand

TLDR
GSH is the smallest intracellular thiol (–SH) molecule, most concentrated in the liver and in the spleen, kidney, lens, erythrocytes, and leukocytes, and supports a complex thiol-exchange system, which hierarchically regulates cell activity. Expand
The Role of Liposomal Antioxidants in Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress has been characterized by an elevation in the steady- state concentration of reactive oxygen species including superoxide anion, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radical. There isExpand

TLDR
Therapeutic thiol administration has been shown to have great potential, and its efficacy should be increased by selecting compounds and methods of delivery that will minimize perturbations in the thiol status of regions external to the targeted areas. Expand

TLDR
A useful approach to understanding the functions of a cellular component such as GSH is to remove it and to determine the consequences of its deletion. Expand
Inhibition of glutathione synthesis in the newborn rat: a model for endogenously produced oxidative stress.
TLDR
A model for oxidative stress is described in which glutathione (GSH) synthesis is selectively blocked in newborn rats by administration of L-buthionine-(S,R)-sulfoximine (BSO), and closely resembles oxidative stress that occurs in certain human newborns and in other clinical states. Expand
Intracellular cysteine delivery system that protects against toxicity by promoting glutathione synthesis.
TLDR
An intracellular cysteine delivery system was used to promote glutathione synthesis, and this was found to protect against toxicity, and the thiazolidine, which is converted to L-cysteine by the enzyme 5-oxo-L-prolinase, is the actual protectant. Expand

TLDR
Therapeutic approaches are proposed in which normal cells may be selectively protected against toxic antitumor agents and radiation by cysteine- and glutathione-delivery compounds. Expand
The role of oxidative stress in HIV disease.
TLDR
Clinical studies are underway to evaluate the efficacy of the glutathione-repleting agents, L-2-oxothiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid (OTC) and N-acetylcysteine (NAC), in HIV-infected patients. Expand
Glutathione depletion in chronic hepatitis C
TLDR
Low glutathione protects against oxidative stress and may also influence gene expression and viral replication in chronic hepatitis C patients and in normal individuals. Expand
Intracellular cysteine and glutathione delivery systems.
TLDR
Glutathione levels much higher than usual can be obtained by this procedure, which protects lymphoid cells against the lethal effects of irradiation and mice against acetaminophen, and which therefore may be a relatively safe way to increase cellular resistance to radiation and certain toxic compounds. Expand
Oxygen free radicals and human disease.
TLDR
There is evidence to implicate oxygen free radicals as important pathologic mediators in many human disease processes. Expand
Glutathione ester delays the onset of scurvy in ascorbate-deficient guinea pigs.
TLDR
The findings support the conclusions that (i) GSH is essential for the physiological function of ascorbate because it is required in vivo for reduction of dehydroascorbate and (ii) there is metabolic redundancy and overlap of the functions of these antioxidants. Expand
