The alpha class glutathione transferase GSTA3-3 is involved in steroid biosynthesis and the metabolism of some xenobiotics. A bioinformatics approach was utilized to identify novel coding region polymorphisms in the glutathione transferase A3 gene (GSTA3). We describe an I71L polymorphism in GSTA3 that occurs at a low frequency in African populations. The activity of the leucine containing isoform was significantly reduced in a range of glutathione- conjugating reactions due to a diminished...[Show more]
