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 of mu class and Ydelta of pi class. On chromatofocusing, they were resolved into six anionic and four cationic isozymes. The cationic… CONTINUE READING
