Inactivation of glutathione transferase zeta by dichloroacetic acid and other fluorine-lacking alpha-haloalkanoic acids

Anderson, Warwick P; Board, Philip; Gargano, Bryan; Anders, Michael


Dichloroacetic acid (DCA) is a contaminant of chlorinated drinking water supplies, is carcinogenic in rats and mice, and is a therapeutic agent used for the treatment of congenital lactic acidosis. The biotransformation of DCA to glyoxylic acid is catalyzed by glutathione transferase zeta (GSTZ). Treatment of rats and human subjects with DCA increases its plasma elimination half-life and reduces the extent of DCA biotransformation in rat hepatic cytosol. In the investigation presented here, the...[Show more]
