Glutathione S-transferases are a family of multifunctional proteins involved in intracellular transport processes and drug detoxication. In rats, these enzymes are dimeric proteins, and exist as cytosolic and microsomal proteins. The affinity purified rat testicular glutathione S-transferases are comprised of four subunits, Yc of alpha class, Yb and Ybeta(More)
Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs; EC, 2.5.1.18) ubiquitously distributed in all life forms, are a family of multigene and multifunctional dimeric proteins, which play a main role in drug detoxication. On purification and on electrophoresis, rat testicular glutathione S-transferases showed that it comprises of four subunits, Yc of alpha class, Yb and Ybeta(More)
To the Editor: Accidental intravascular injection of local anesthetic can cause central nervous system (CNS) toxicity, presenting as tremors, convulsions, dysrhythmias, and cardiorespiratory arrest. During epidural anesthesia, a test dose is used to diagnose inadvertent intravascular or intrathecal administration of drugs. We present a case where the test(More)
A comparative study was made on the tissue specific expression of glutathione transferases (GST) in brain and testis after exposure of rat to phenobarbitol (PB) and β-methylcholanthrene (MC). Glutathione transferases, a family of multifunctional proteins are involved in intracellular transport processes and in detoxication of electrophilic xenobiotics by(More)
We report a case of a four-year-old boy with stage 1 Wilms tumour, who developed Vincristine-induced acute life- threatening hyponatremia, which presented as generalized tonic clonic seizures and coma. He was intubated and mechanically ventilated. There were no localizing neurological signs. CSF study showed no cells and CSF proteins were 20 mg%.(More)
