Neutrophil antioxidant capacity during the respiratory burst: loss of glutathione induced by chloramines.

Abstract

Low-molecular weight antioxidants in rat peritoneal neutrophils undergo rapid redox recycling, so measurements were made of their initial content and subsequent changes during the respiratory burst, when superoxide formation is maximized. Endogenous vitamin E, ascorbate and total glutathione (reduced + oxidized) were not significantly changed during 30 min… (More)
