Abstract: Glutathione plays an essential role in the intracellular antioxidant defense against oxidant radicals, especially the •OH radical. To understand the early and progressive cellular changes in the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD), we investigated reduced glutathione/oxidized glutathione (GSH/GSSG) status in a double mutated AD transgenic mouse model (B6.Cg-Tg), which carries Swedish amyloid-β protein precursor mutation (AβPPswe) and exon 9 deletion of the PSEN1 gene. In this study, we quantified and comp…
