Glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx) activity in the normal human brain was investigated using lipid hydroperoxides as substrates. Samples were obtained from autopsied frontal gray matter of 5 normal human males with no known central nervous system (CNS) disease. Aliquots were homogenized in 0.9% NaCl-0.5% Triton X-100, and the supernatant solution, obtained… CONTINUE READING
