Low-molecular-weight thiol-dependent antioxidant and antinitrosative defences in Salmonella pathogenesis.

Abstract

We found herein that the intracytoplasmic pool of the low-molecular-weight (LMW) thiol glutathione (GSH) is readily oxidized in Salmonella exposed to nitric oxide (NO). The hypersusceptibility of gshA and gshB mutants lacking γ-glutamylcysteine and glutathione synthetases to NO and S-nitrosoglutathione indicates that GSH antagonizes the bacteriostatic… (More)
