Possible implication of glutathione reductase in haemolysis by the direct lytic factor of cobra venom (Naja naja)


The activity of glutathione reductase (GR) was measured in haemolysates and red cell membranes of various species. The enzyme levels were compared with the susceptibility of the respective cells to the direct lytic factor (DLF) of cobra venom. A positive correlation was found in so far as cells having high (low) GR activity were highly (little) sensitive to… (More)
