  • There are no reports concerning glutathione‐S‐conjugates transport in prokaryotic cells, although many studies have been performed in eukaryotic systems. This study demonstrates that glutathione S‐conjugates (2,4‐dinitrophenyl‐S‐glutathione and bimane‐S‐glutathione) are transported also out of Escherichia coli K12 cells. This transport is inhibited by vanadate, fluoride and other inhibitors of glutathione S‐conjugate transport in mammalian cells suggesting a similarity of this process to that… CONTINUE READING
