The protective role of intracellular GSH status in the arsenite-induced vascular endothelial dysfunction.

Abstract

In this study, we used porcine aortic endothelial cells (PAECs) as an in vitro system to investigate the role of intracellular GSH status in arsenite-induced vascular endothelial damage. Exposure of PAECs to l-buthionine sulfoximine (BSO), an inhibitor of gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase (gamma-GCS), markedly enhanced the arsenite-induced cytotoxicity. The… (More)
