Mycothiol disulfide reductase: a continuous assay for slow time-dependent inhibitors.


Mycothiol (MSH) is the principal low-molecular-weight thiol, unique to mycobacteria and other actinomycetes, that performs a role analogous to glutathione found in other organisms. MSH plays a key role in oxidative stress management and is oxidized to the dimeric mycothiol disulfide (MSSM) in the process. NADPH-dependent mycothiol disulfide reductase (Mtr… (More)
