Glutathione peroxidase (GPX) and glutathione S-transferase (GST) are key enzymes of cellular detoxification systems that defend cells against reactive oxygen species (ROS). In this study, we isolated the GPX and GST full-length cDNA and investigated the expression of these mRNAs from livers of olive flounder during salinity changes (35, 17.5, 8.75, 4 and 0… CONTINUE READING
