Oxidative stress and abnormal glutathione metabolism is thought to play an important role in various diseases of cats. However, current assays for the reduced form of glutathione (GSH) are time-consuming and semi-quantitative and do not allow assessment of GSH concentrations in individual cell populations. Therefore, we developed a flow cytometric assay for rapid determination of intracellular GSH concentrations in feline blood leukocytes.
