Abstract

Abstract The reactions of sulfite on the mixed disulfides of glutathione and cysteine and on those of thiol-proteins and cysteine have been investigated. It was found that substitution at the S-S bond of the glutathione-cysteine disulfide takes place at random but that a specific sulfur atom (that of the “free” cysteine part of the molecule) in the protein-cysteine mixed disulfides is attacked more frequently than its mate. This directed substitution is eliminated when the reaction is carried out in a concentrated solution of urea.
