Role of glutathione in selenite binding by human plasma


The erythrocyte-mediated reduction of selenite has been reproduced by the addition of reduced glutathione to plasma at levels comparable to those present in the erythrocyte. The reaction has been followed by chromatography and ultraviolet (UV) absorption spectroscopy (in the absence of plasma). The first detectable compound, selenium diglutathione, is very… (More)
