We have shown previously that the alpha class murine glutathione transferase (GST) isoenzyme mGSTA1-1, unlike other mammalian class alpha GSTs, is highly efficient in catalyzing the glutathione (GSH) conjugation of (7R,8S)-dihydroxy-(9S,10R)-epoxy-7,8,9,10-tetrahydrobenzo[a]pyrene [(+)-anti-BPDE], which is the ultimate carcinogenic metabolite of benzo[a]pyrene. The present studies were undertaken to determine the efficacy of mGSTA1-1 in cellular protection against (+)-anti-BPDE-induced DNA… CONTINUE READING
