Abstract Biaglow, J. E., Ayene, I. S., Koch, C. J., Donahue, J., Stamato, T. D., Mieyal, J. J. and Tuttle, S. W. Radiation Response of Cells during Altered Protein Thiol Redox. Radiat. Res. 159, 484–494 (2003). The major focus of this work was to investigate how altered protein thiol redox homeostasis affects radiation-induced cell death. We used the cells of wild-type CHO cell line K1, the CHO cell line E89, which is null for G6PD activity, and a radiation-sensitive CHO cell line, XRS5. The… 
Role of Vicinal Protein Thiols in Radiation and Cytotoxic Responses
It is concluded that radiation sensitivity and cell survival are dependent on vicinal thiol and GSH, and both are key enzymes involved in DNA synthesis, protein homeostasis andcell survival.
Protein oxidative damage and redox imbalance induced by ionising radiation in CHO cells
The results showed that IR generated an early high oxidising potential in irradiated cells potentially able to propagate the damage and induce oxidative modification of secondary targets.
The thioredoxin reductase/thioredoxin system: Novel redox targets for cancer therapy
Findings suggest that the TRX/TX system may represent an attractive target for development of new cancer therapeutics.
Effects of redox modulation by inhibition of thioredoxin reductase on radiosensitivity and gene expression
Results clearly demonstrate TrxR as an important factor conferring resistance to irradiation and the use of [Au(SCN)(PEt3], the phosphine gold(I) compound, as a promising radiosensitizing agent.

Mutation in G6PD gene leads to loss of cellular control of protein glutathionylation: Mechanism and implication
Hydroxyethyldisulfide (HEDS), an oxidant which undergoes disulfide exchange with existing thiols, is used to compare the effect of HEDS on global protein glutathionylation with that of Ku protein function, a multifunctional DNA repair protein, using a novel ELISA.
Hydroxyethyl disulfide as an efficient metabolic assay for cell viability in vitro.
Production of intracellular superoxide mediates dithiothreitol-dependent inhibition of apoptotic cell death.
The results show that the apoptosis-inhibitory activity of DTT may not be due to its antioxidant property, but instead linked to its ability to induce an increase in intracellular O2 (.-) level.


Oxidation of cellular thiols by hydroxyethyldisulphide inhibits DNA double-strand-break rejoining in G6PD deficient mammalian cells
The results suggest that a functioning oxidative pentose phosphate pathway is required for DSB rejoining in cells exposed to a mild thiol oxidant.
G6PD deficient cells and the bioreduction of disulfides: effects of DHEA, GSH depletion and phenylarsine oxide.
Surprisingly, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a known inhibitor of G6PD, inhibits the growth and blocks the reduction of HEDS both in 89 and K1 cells suggesting that its mechanism for inhibition of growth is not G6 PD related.
The role of thiols in cellular response to radiation and drugs.
An altered thiol model is proposed which includes a mechanism for thiol involvement in the aerobic radiation response of cells and involves both thiol-linked hydrogen donation to oxygen radical adducts to produce hydroperoxides followed by a GSH peroxidase-catalyzed reduction of the hydroperoxide to intermediates entering into metabolic pathways to produce the original molecule.
A method for measuring disulfide reduction by cultured mammalian cells: relative contributions of glutathione-dependent and glutathione-independent mechanisms.
The data suggest that the relative participation of the thioltransferase (glutaredoxin) and thioredoxin systems in overall cellular disulfide reduction is cell line specific.
Glutathione Levels and Sensitivity to Apoptosis Are Regulated by Changes in Transaldolase Expression*
Results provide definitive evidence that TAL has a role in regulating the balance between the two branches of PPP and its overall output as measured by GSH production and thus influences sensitivity to cell death signals.
Thioltransferase (Glutaredoxin) Reactivates the DNA-binding Activity of Oxidation-inactivated Nuclear Factor I*
It is shown that restoration of the DNA-binding activity of oxidized NFI-C can be catalyzed in vitro by the cellular enzyme thiol transferase (glutaredoxin) coupled to GSH and GSSG reductase, likely involving thioltransferase-catalyzed reduction of the oxidation-sensitive cysteine residue on NFI.
Protein sulfhydryls and their role in the antioxidant function of protein S-thiolation.
The current status of experiments that relate to both the role of the cellular process and to the reactivity of selected proteins that participate in the cellular processes are discussed, including glutathione, a molecule of central interest in every aspect of protein S-thiolation and dethiolation.
Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase and the Oxidative Pentose Phosphate Cycle Protect Cellsagainst Apoptosis Induced by Low Doses of Ionizing Radiation
It is suggested that G6PD and the oxidative pentose phosphate shunt protect cells from ionizing radiation- induced cell killing by limiting the incidence of radiation-induced apoptosis.

A novel physiological relevance of actin polymerization regulated by reversible glutathionylation of the penultimate cysteine mediated by growth factor stimulation is revealed.
