Role of glutathione in reversing the deleterious effects of a thiol-oxidizing agent in Escherichia coli



Role of glutathione in reversing the deleterious effects of a thiol-oxidizing agent in Escherichia coli



Journal of Bacteriology 133(3): 1150-1155



Diamide was found to be much less specific for the oxidation of glutathione in vivo in Escherichia coli than had been previously assumed. In vivo, only a slight alteration of the ratio of reduced to oxidized glutathione was found, whereas a significant amount of glutathione was found in the form of mixed disulfide with proteins. This latter occurrence was postulated as being responsible for the bacteriostatic effect of diamide.
