Glutathione redox state regulates mitochondrial reactive oxygen production.


Oxidative stress induced by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD; dioxin) is poorly understood. Following one dose of TCDD (5 microg/kg body weight), mitochondrial succinate-dependent production of superoxide and H2O2 in mouse liver doubled at 7-28 days, then subsided by day 56; concomitantly, levels of GSH and GSSG increased in both cytosol and… (More)
