Rate-limiting Description

"Although aspects of the glutathione antioxidant repertoire were similarly diminished with high-intensity xanthine oxidase stress, low-dose (long duration) xanthine oxidase stress augmented the activities of type II cell glutathione peroxidase and gamma-glutamyl transferase (the rate-limiting enzyme in glutathione synthesis)."
