The effect of glutathione (GSH) isopropyl ester on cellular sensitivity to UVB irradiation was investigated in HeLaS3 cells. Pretreatment with 0.1-0.5 mM GSH isopropyl ester for 4 h significantly inhibited the decrease of thymidine (TdR) incorporation caused by UVB irradiation at a dose of 500 J/m2, whereas pretreatment with a high dose (1 mM) had no effect… CONTINUE READING
