In ad lib.-fed rats the epithelium of the small intestine, like the liver, contains large quantities of glutathione, 17.0 and 32.4 nmol/mg protein respectively. Following 24 h food restriction the glutathione content in both tissues fell 53 and 69% respectively. Unlike the liver, however, the glutathione content of the intestinal mucosa is not regulated to a diurnal rhythm, suggesting that the liver may provide glutathione or glutathione precursors to maintain intestinal glutathione levels… Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor enhances glutathione redox state in rat intestinal mucosa during nutritional repletion.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that gut trophic hormones and food intake may independently support gut mucosal glutathione antioxidant capacity during nutritional repletion. Expand
Glutathione transport system in human small intestine epithelial cells.
TLDR
The present study characterizes for the first time a GSH specific transporter in a human intestinal epithelial cell line (I407) and shows a remarkable affinity and specificity of this transporter for GSH. Expand
Effects of glutamine supplementation on gut barrier, glutathione content and acute phase response in malnourished rats during inflammatory shock.
TLDR
Glutamine restored gut glutathione stores and villus heights in malnourished rats but had no preventive effect on bacterial translocation in the authors' model. Expand
Contribution of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids to Intestinal Repair in Protein-Energy Malnutrition
TLDR
It is shown that both, the FO and the BPL diets, increase GSH levels in colon and that some antioxidant enzyme activities vary according to the source of fatty acids, with higher catalase and superoxide dismutase by the FO diet in jejunum, and elevated glutathione peroxidase in colon. Expand
Impairment of Intestinal Mucosal Antioxidant Defense System During Salmonella typhimurium Infection
TLDR
Findings might indicate a decreased endogenous intestinal protection against ROS in S. typhimurium-mediated infection, which could contribute to the pathogenesis of the disease. Expand
First-pass splanchnic metabolism of dietary cysteine in weanling pigs.
TLDR
It is concluded that the gut utilizes 25% of the dietary Cysteine intake and that synthesis of mucosal epithelial proteins, such as glutathione and mucin, are a major nonoxidative metabolic fate for cysteine. Expand
Intestinal mucosal lipid peroxidation and absorptive function In Salmonella typhimurium mediated intestinal infection
TLDR
Investigating if ROS play a role in mediating the changes in the structural components and functional properties of brush border membrane (BBM) in rats during S. typhimurium infection found a significant increase in the extent of lipid peroxidation and absorptive function and a decrease in the amino acid transport. Expand
Enteral glutamate is the preferential source for mucosal glutathione synthesis in fed piglets.
TLDR
It is concluded that, in fed piglets, mucosal GSH-glutamate derived largely from the direct metabolism of enteral glutamate rather than from glutamate that was metabolized within the mucosa. Expand
Glutamine preserves protein synthesis and paracellular permeability in Caco-2 cells submitted to "luminal fasting".
TLDR
In Caco-2 cells, protein synthesis depends on nutrient supply on the apical side, and glutamine regardless of the route of supply corrects some of the deleterious effects of fasting in a model of human enterocytes through its deamidation into glutamate. Expand
Induction of phase II biotransformation reactions in rat jejunum during lactation. Possible involvement of prolactin.
TLDR
Results indicate that UGT and GST activities are increased in rat jejunum during lactation, due to induction of some specific isoforms, and that prolactin is the likely mediator of these effects. Expand

Rat liver glutathione: possible role as a reservoir of cysteine.
TLDR
It is suggested that there may be at least two pools of glutathione, a labile fraction which probably serves as a reservoir of cysteine which can be released by gamma-glutamyl-transferase when necessary. Expand
Tissue glutathione as a cyst(e)ine reservoir during fasting and refeeding of rats.
TLDR
The data indicate that liver and intestine glutathione serve as cyst(e)ine reservoirs during fasting, and since erythrocyte and muscle glutathion levels did not decrease, levels in these tissues cannot be used to measure Cyst( e)ine status in premature infants fed parenterally. Expand
Diurnal fluctuation and pharmacological alteration of mouse organ glutathione content.
TLDR
Intravenously given N-acetylcysteine, methionine, GSH or GSSG restored liver glutathione levels of starved animals to the contents observed in the fed state, and the diurnal hepatic variation of GSH caused by the food intake habit of the animals may limit the capacity of the intracellular detoxication system. Expand
Rapid oxidation in vitro of endogenous and exogenous glutathione in bile of rats.
TLDR
It is found that bile, unlike liver cytosol or buffer, had the unique ability to oxidize GSH rapidly to the disulfide form by a nonenzymatic, O2, and pH-dependent chemical reaction inhibited by only certain chelating agents. Expand
Hepatic Glutathione Homeostasis in the Rat: Efflux Accounts for Glutathione Turnover
TLDR
The liver is the major source of plasma glutathione, and turnover of hepatic glutATHione in the basal state is accounted for almost entirely by efflux of glutathion from the liver, as determined from the clearance and the arterial concentration of glutathlonione. Expand
Plasma glutathione and glutathione disulfide in the rat: regulation and response to oxidative stress.
TLDR
Assessment of the arteriovenous difference for GSSG across the lungs after paraquat administration demonstrated that the lung may be a significant source of plasma G SSG. Expand
The effects of age and glutathione depletion on hepatic glutathione turnover in vivo determined by acetaminophen probe analysis.
TLDR
No evidence for two pools of glutathione with different half-lives was found; previous reports of two glutATHione pools may have failed to account for hepatic protein turnover with subsequent release of radiolabeled amino acids for glutathion synthesis. Expand
Xenobiotic metabolism by isolated rat small intestinal cells.
TLDR
Intestinal cells metabolized paracetamol to the glucuronide, sulphate, glutathione and cysteine conjugates, which are evidence of cytochrome-P-450-dependent metabolic activation of par acetamol by intestinal cells. Expand

TLDR
It is now recognized that the transferases may affect net uptake by the liver by minimizing back diffusion and a role in hepatic organic anion transport has been proposed for the transferase (previously known as Y protein or ligandin). Expand

TLDR
Results indicate the existence of a GSH-dependent rat liver microsomal protein which scavenges free radicals and may be an important defense against free radical injury to the microsome membrane. Expand
