Modelling and bioinformatics studies of the human Kappa-class glutathione transferase predict a novel third glutathione transferase family with similarity to prokaryotic 2-hydroxychromene-2-carboxylate isomerases

Robinson, Anna; Huttley, Gavin Austin; Booth, Hilary; Board, Philip


The Kappa class of GSTs (glutathione transferases) comprises soluble enzymes originally isolated from the mitochondrial matrix of rats. We have characterized a Kappa class cDNA from human breast. The cDNA is derived from a single gene comprising eight exons and seven introns located on chromosome 7q34-35. Recombinant hGSTK1-1 was expressed in Escherichia coli as a homodimer (subunit molecular mass ∼ 25.5 kDa). Significant glutathione-conjugating activity was found only with the model substrate...[Show more]
