Sources/Uses

"A GLUTATHIONE dimer formed by a disulfide bond between the cysteine sulfhydryl side chains during the course of being oxidized." [ChemIDplus] "In living cells, glutathione disulfide is reduced into two molecules of glutathione with reducing equivalents from the coenzyme NADPH. This reaction is catalyzed by the enzyme glutathione reductase." [Wikipedia]

Comments

May cause irritation; [Sigma-Aldrich MSDS]
