    L-Glutathione is used in the treatment of lung diseases for patients who are HIV positive. It protects the cancerous cells by conferring resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs. It is involved in many aspects of metabolism including transport of g-glutanyl amino acids and reductive cleavage of disulfide bonds. As an antioxidant, it prevents damage to important cellular components that arise due to reactive oxygen species like free radicals and peroxide. It is also used to decrease the concentrations of inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-18) as well as involved in increasing the level of serum Ca2+ ions. It is also used in white wine production.

    Soluble in water, dimethyl formamide, ethanol, phosphate buffered saline, diluted alcohol, liquid ammonia and dimethyl sulfoxide.

    Store in cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
