Cystine, which is formed from two cysteine molecules joined together, is more stable than cysteine.

 

Cystine is required for the synthesis of glutathione that protects the cells from oxidative stress. A specific x(c)-cysteine/glutamate antiporter mediates cellular uptake of cysteine in exchange for glutamate.
