|Topic:||Synthesis of Glutathione .|
|Details:||The synthesis of glutathione, which occurs in the cytosol of all cells, proceeds via a two-step reaction involving the ATP-requiring enzymes glutamate-cysteine ligase (GCL) and glutathione synthetase (GSS). The common designation for reduced glutathione (monomeric) is GSH. When glutathione reduces reactive oxygen or nitrogen species, or upon its involvement in many other reduction reactions, it becomes oxidized to the dimeric form which is abbreviated GSSG|
