Pyruvate modulates antioxidant status of cultured human lens epithelial cells under hypergalactosemic conditions

Abstract

Lens epithelial cells are the metabolic unit of the lens and antioxidant enzymes are mainly concentrated here. The purpose of this study was to maintain human lens epithelial cells (HLEC) in culture and examine the status of antioxidant enzymes (glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx), catalase (CAT), glutathione-S-transferase (GST)), lipid peroxidation product… (More)
