Human GSH-Transferase in Risk Assessment
Human cytosolic glutathione-S-transferases (GST) are dimeric enzymes which have been classified, mainly by their isoelectric points, into four classes (Brockmöller et al. 1993):
class α (basic, GSTA);
class μ (near-neutral, new GSTM);
class π (acidic, GSTP);
class θ (slightly basic, GSTT).
