The effects of focal ischemia and reperfusion on the glutathione content of mitochondria from rat brain subregions.

Glutathione is a key cellular antioxidant that is contained in both cytoplasmic and mitochondrial compartments. Previous investigations indicate that depletion of the mitochondrial pool of glutathione can greatly reduce cell viability. In the present investigation, the effect of focal cerebral ischemia on total (reduced plus oxidized) glutathione in… (More)
