Selenium level and glutathione-dependent enzyme activities in normal and neoplastic human lung tissues.


Selenium, glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase and glyoxalase I have been measured in normal and neoplastic human adult lung tissues. Interindividual variations of enzyme activities and selenium content in both tumour and non-tumour tissues were considerable. From the measurements of glutathione peroxidase activity with both hydrogen peroxide and… (More)
