From: Ets-1 regulates intracellular glutathione levels: key target for resistant ovarian cancer

Figure 3

The transsulfuration pathway is a major GSH source in normoxic ovarian cancer cells. 2008, 2008-Ets1 and induced 2008-Ets1 ovarian cancer cells were treated with PPG or SAS for 24 hrs, and the redox capacity was examined. A) Quantitative total GSH levels were significantly decreased in response to PPG treatment in all cell lines, while SAS did not significantly affect GSH levels (n = 3). B) Like total GSH levels, enzyme activity of GPX was significantly decreased by PPG-mediated blockade of the transsulfuration pathway. SAS treatment resulted in decreased GPX activity only in Ets-1 overexpression cell lines (n = 3). C) The protein expression of factors involved in redox regulation was measured via Western blot, including Ets-1, HIF-1α, xCT, GPX-1, and GPX-2, with actin as a loading control (n = 3).
