Using cultured human endothelial cells, we investigated the contribution of concentrations of magnesium to the antioxidant system and oxidative stress. Cells were cultured at decreasing magnesium levels (569, 380, 190 and 95 microM) for 72 h. We then measured the amount of released hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) from the cells, the consumption of exogenous H2O2, the intracellular reduced glutathione (GSH) and the oxidized glutathione (GSSG) contents and the activities of glutathione reductase and… CONTINUE READING
