Glutathione-Sulfhydryl Proteins Glutathione, a polypeptide is actively synthesized in the lens. It is a tripeptide containing glycine, cysteine and glutamic acid. The levels of glutathione in the lens are high and most of lens glutathione is in the reduced form (GSH). 8 percent of all lens Glutathione is in the oxidized form (GSSG). GSH and GSSG are in equilibrium. 0 micromoles/gm in human lens. GSH levels are much higher in the cortex than in the nucleus of the lens. A reducing agent by virtue of its free sulfhydryl group, glutathione maintains membrane stability in the lens by supporting the protein complexes of the membrane.
Urea cycle enzymes are active in human lens and cataracts. Research studies have now clearly shown that formation of protein S-S bonds is the major primary or secondary event associated in senile cataracts. Oxidation of lens protein SH groups with H2O2 induces protein conformation changes leading to opacification. Protection against oxidation of protein SH groups is vital. Cysteine and glutathione have proven effective to prevent formation of S-S protein bonds. Protein unfolding due to primary modification of exposed lysine amine groups can be prevented by lysine acetylation.
