Glutathione is produced from the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamine via the consecutive actions of gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase and GS.
The lack of glutathione in erythrocytes alone is apparently tolerable, as has been noted with the mild form of this condition; however, in severe GS deficiency, a progressive loss of function occurs, leading to severe mental retardation, ataxia, and seizure disorders.

Our glutathione system was sufficient to detoxify the smoke of a small cook fire, but it is overwhelmed by the sheer mass of airborne toxins it must currently deal with, and so these air borne toxins begin accumulating in our bodies.

The evidence suggests that a substantial fraction of the urinary glutathione arises from the kidney.
-glutamyl transpeptidase provide direct evidence that glutathione is normally translocated from tissues to the blood plasma and that the turnover of plasma glutathione is relatively high.
Thus, glutathione synthesized in cells that have transpeptidase may be translocated to and used by the membrane-bound enzyme, whereas glutathione synthesized in cells that lack the transpeptidase may be transported via the plasma to transpeptidase located on the membranes of other cells.
