Rat liver contains a high concentration (7-8mM) of reduced glutathione and its level changes rapidly when starving or feeding rats. We concluded that one of the functions of liver glutathione was to act as a reservoir of cysteine. When starved rats were fed a protein-free diet, the increase in liver glutathione was dependent on the amount of cysteine added to the diet. A cysteine-dependent increase of glutathione was also observed in rats fed a diet containing gelatin with cysteine, but the… Expand
