Leukocyte and plasma concentrations of free glutathione, cysteine, methionine, and taurine, and total glutathione and cysteine concentrations were determined in healthy human subjects before and during a seven-day period of total energy deprivation. In leukocytes a progressive decline in total glutathione concentration was found during seven days of starvation due to a decrease in free glutathione content. An increased mixed protein-bound glutathione concentration was calculated, whereas the… CONTINUE READING
