The Dynamics of Glutathione Species and Ophthalmate Concentrations in Plasma from the VX2 Rabbit Model of Secondary Liver Tumors

Figure 8

Cysteine concentration in liver tissue from the VX2 rabbit model. The concentration of cysteine was measured in liver tissue samples from experimental group (liver tissue adjacent to the tumor and liver tissue from the lobe without tumor) and liver tissue from sham animals. Levels of cysteine were found to be significantly lower in liver tissue adjacent to the tumor when compared to liver tissue from the lobe not containing tumor ( paired -test). Relative concentrations of cysteine in liver tissue were similar between the experimental group (both liver adjacent to the tumor and liver away from tumor) when compared to the sham group ( , independent -test).
