Glutathione metabolism in lenses of dogs and rabbits: activities of five enzymes.

Several biochemical parameters were examined in clear dog and rabbit lenses as functions of age, and in posterior subcapsular cataracts in the Alaskan malamute. Tabulated data include soluble protein, reduced sulfhydryl content of soluble protein, reduced glutathione, water, and activity of five enzymes of glutathione metabolism. The enzymes include the glutathione biosynthesis system consisting of gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase and glutathione synthetase, as well as glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase and glutathione-S-transferase. Each enzyme, acting last in a sequential reaction of either two or three reactions, was in excess activity over the preceding enzyme(s) in every case but one. In the exception, the ratio of glutathione reductase to glutathione peroxidase activity was about 1:600 and 1:155 in the dog and rabbit lens, respectively.[1]
