Abstract

Glutathione is a physiologically important tripeptide with the sequence γ-glutamylcysteineinylglycine (1). This ubiquitous molecule is the most abundant cellular oligopeptide with a thiol group. Glutathione, like other small peptides, is not generated by messanger RNA-directed ribosomal protein synthesis, but it is synthesized from free amino acids within each cell (2).
