1989). Because of the thiol function of cysteine, radical, glutathione exists in reduced (GSH) or oxidized (GSSG) forms. GSH is the major hydrosoluble antioxidant in animal cells and is an efficient free radical scavenger, protecting cells from reactive oxygen species (ROS) attacks, especially hydrogen peroxide. Any changes in GSH and GSSG concentrations directly reflect alterations of their redox state. ). Moreover, glutathione is involved in the regulation of expression and/or activation of transcriptional factors “oxidation-sensitive” necessary for the antioxidant response in the cell (Wu et al.
