The glutathionylation of p65 modulates NF-κB activity in 15-deoxy-Δ¹²,¹⁴-prostaglandin J₂-treated endothelial cells.

Protein glutathionylation is a posttranslational modification of cysteine residues with glutathione in response to mild oxidative stress. Because 15-deoxy-Δ12,14-prostaglandin J(2) (15d-PGJ(2)) is an electrophilic prostaglandin that can increase glutathione (GSH) levels and augment reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, we hypothesized that it induces NF… CONTINUE READING
