Glutathione depletion by buthionine sulfoximine induces DNA deletions in mice.


Oxidative stress and genomic rearrangements play a role in cancer development. l-Buthionine-sulfoximine (BSO) induces oxidative stress in a cell by irreversibly inhibiting gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase, an essential enzyme for the synthesis of glutathione (GSH). We postulated that oxidative stress induced by GSH depletion might lead to genomic… (More)
