Abstract. The zeta class of glutathione S-transferases (GSTZ) is one of the most recently discovered soluble GST classes and has proved to be of considerable interest because of its contribution to the catabolism of phenylalanine and tyrosine and its role in α-halo acid was originally discovered as a result of a bioinformatic approach to gene discovery in the by: 2.

Glutathione S-transferase (GST) theta 1 (GSTT1) is a member of a superfamily of proteins that catalyze the conjugation of reduced glutathione to a variety of electrophilic and hydrophobic compounds.

Human GSTs can be divided into five main classes: alpha, mu, pi, theta, and s: GSTT1, glutathione S-transferase theta 1.

A new polymorphic form of glutathioneS-transferase (GST), metabolising monohalogenated methanes, ethylene oxide and dichloromethane, has been purified from human erythrocytes and characterized.

Moench) shoots. GST A1/A1, a constitutively expressed homodimer, had a subunit molecular mass of 26 kD and an isoelectric point of GST A1/A1 exhibited high activity with 1. By BLAST searching a large expressed sequence tag database for glutathione S -transferase (GST) sequences we have identified 25 soybean (Glycine max) and 42 maize (Zea mays) clones and obtained accurate full-length GST sequences.

These clones probably represent the majority of members of the GST multigene family in these species. Plant GSTs are divided according to. Glutathione S-transferase omega-1 and 2 genes (GSTO1, GSTO2), residing within an Alzheimer and Parkinson disease (AD and PD) linkage region, have diverse functions including mitigation of oxidative stress and may underlie the pathophysiology of both diseases.
