Glutathione, as the chief nonprotein intracellular sulfhydryl, affects the efficacy and interactions of a variety of antineoplastic interventions, mainly through nucleophilic thioether formation or oxidation-reduction reactions. Thus, glutathione plays a role in the detoxification and repair of cellular injury by such diverse agents as mechlorethamine, melphalan, cyclophosphamide, nitrosoureas, 6-thiopurine, 4'-(9-acridinylamino)methanesulfon-m-anisidide, the quinone antibiotics (including… Expand
Glutathione S-transferases: role in alkylating agent resistance and possible target for modulation chemotherapy--a review.
  • D. Waxman
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Cancer research
  • 1990
TLDR
This article focuses on the interaction of GSTs with cancer chemo therapeutic drugs and evaluates the current understanding of the importance of GST-dependent drug conjugation reactions for alkylating agent resistance in tumor cells that overexpress one or more GSTs. Expand
Relationship between activation of microsomal glutathione S-transferase and metabolism behavior of chlorambucil.
TLDR
The results suggest the potential role of the activation of mGST in the CMB inactivation and in the development of acquired drug resistance. Expand
Thiol-related mechanisms of resistance in a murine tumor model.
TLDR
Thiols could play a significant role in the acquired resistance and cross-resistance to chemotherapeutic agents, and modulation of these enzymes may be an effective means of enhancing anticancer therapies. Expand
Metabolism of chlorambucil by rat liver microsomal glutathione S-transferase.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that rat liver microsomal GST presented a strong catalytic effect on these reactions as determined by the increase of CHBSG2, CHBSGOH andCHBSG and the decrease of CHB and the potential involvement in the establishment of acquired drug resistance (ADR) to CHB remains uncertain. Expand
Effect of 4-Hydroperoxyifosfamide on the Cellular Glutathione Pathway
TLDR
Exposure to 4-hydroperoxyifosfamide leads to significant depletion of cellular GSH concentrations and may dependently potentiate the antitumor efficacy of other anticancer agents (e. g., cisplatin, anthracyclines). Expand
Clinical studies of reversal of drug resistance based on glutathione.
TLDR
This chapter describes the abundant preclinical data that support the development of pharmacologic strategies to lower GSH and inactivate the gluathione-S-transferases to make anti-cancer drugs more effective. Expand
Proline Analogue of Nitrosourea as a New Cytotoxic Prodrug
TLDR
It was shown that carmustine as well as AC cause an increase in hydrogen peroxide concentration in normal and neoplastic cells and are a reason of oxidative stress formation. Expand
Chemoprotectants for cancer chemotherapy.
  • R. Dorr
  • Medicine
  • Seminars in oncology
  • 1991
TLDR
Clinical trials suggest that oral mesna has adequate bioavailability to prevent urotoxicity in high-dose ifosfamide regimens and ICRF-187 can prevent doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy, showing that site-selective chemoprotection is now feasible for at least two major classes of anticancer agents. Expand
Chemosensitization of L-phenylalanine mustard by the thiol-modulating agent buthionine sulfoximine.
TLDR
The bone marrow was found to be the most resistant tissue to thiol depletion by BSO and was finding to tolerate the combination of BSOand therapeutic doses of L-PAM, however, BSO pretreatment markedly inhibited the recovery of the peripheral WBC population at the LD10 dose of L.PAM. Expand
Effects of Buthionine Sulfoximine Treatment on Cellular Glutathione Levels and Cytotoxicities of Cisplatin, Carboplatin and Radiation in Human Stomach and Ovarian Cancer Cell Lines*
TLDR
It is concluded that BSO can deplete effectively the intracellular thiol concentration and enhance the cytotoxicities of cisplatin, carboplatin and radiation. Expand

Inhibition of glutathione synthesis augments lysis of murine tumor cells by sulfhydryl-reactive antineoplastics.
TLDR
A critical role is demonstrated for GSH synthetic capacity as a determinant of tumor cell susceptibility to cytolysis by SL, suggesting the possibility that the coordinated deployment of sulfhydryl-reactive antitumor agents, BSO, and oxidative injury might constitute an effective chemotherapeutic strategy. Expand
Non-protein thiols and cellular response to drugs and radiation.
TLDR
These studies strongly suggest that potential new sensitizers be routinely examined for their capacity to react spontaneously with GSH or to remove cellular NPSH under aerobic as well as anaerobic conditions, especially true for radiosensitizing drugs showing anomalous behavior. 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
New aspects of glutathione metabolism and translocation in mammals.
TLDR
Research in mice showed that transport of intracellular glutathione to membrane-bound transpeptidase is a discrete step in the gamma-glutamyl cycle, and that the level of plasma glutatione reflects the appreciable rate of glutATHione utilization. Expand
A general mechanism for microsomal activation of quinone anticancer agents to free radicals.
TLDR
It is proposed that the intracellular activation of these quinone anticancer drugs to a free radical state may be primary to their cytotoxic activity. Expand
The role of thiols in cellular response to radiation and drugs.
TLDR
An altered thiol model is proposed which includes a mechanism for thiol involvement in the aerobic radiation response of cells and involves both thiol-linked hydrogen donation to oxygen radical adducts to produce hydroperoxides followed by a GSH peroxidase-catalyzed reduction of the hydroperoxide to intermediates entering into metabolic pathways to produce the original molecule. Expand
Glutathione depletion sensitizes tumor cells to oxidative cytolysis.
TLDR
Results demonstrate the importance of GSH to tumor cell antioxidant defenses and the previous finding that inhibition of the GSH redox cycle of tumor cells enhances both macrophageand glucose oxidase-mediated cytolysis. Expand
Secretion of oxygen intermediates: role in effector functions of activated macrophages.
  • C. Nathan
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Federation proceedings
  • 1982
TLDR
The ability of macrophages to secrete reactive oxygen intermediates, such as superoxide or hydrogen peroxide, correlates closely with their capacity to kill trypanosoma, toxoplasma, leishmania, and candida, so direct attention is paid to antioxidant defenses in tumor cells and parasites. Expand
Mammalian cell studies with diamide.
  • J. Harris
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Pharmacology & therapeutics
  • 1979
TLDR
Diamide sensitizes hypoxic cells synergistically with nitrofuran or nitroimidazole sensitizers, is effective against ascites tumors in vitro, and is useful for elucidating the mechanisms of aminothiol radioprotection. Expand
Tumor cell anti-oxidant defenses. Inhibition of the glutathione redox cycle enhances macrophage-mediated cytolysis
TLDR
The oxidation-reduction cycle of glutathione serves as one of the major defense mechanisms of tumor cells against three related forms of oxidant injury: lysis by fluxes of H(2)0(2), by PMA-triggered macrophages, and by macrophage in the presence of anti-tumor antibody. Expand
