The discussion is centred on cysteine/cystine redox balance, the significance of the xc− cystine–glutamate exchanger and the association between protein thiol redox balance and neurodegeneration, with particular reference to Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and glaucoma. The role of thiol disulphide oxidoreductases in providing neuroprotection is also discussed.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Authors||Keywords:||Cysteine;Glutathione;Thioredoxin;Glutaredoxin;Peroxiredoxin;Neurodegenerative disease||DOI:||10.1016/j.redox.2015.04.004||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
