Glutathione S-transferase in humans: development and tissue distribution


Glutathione S-transferase (GST) was investigated with benzo(a)pyrene-4,5-oxide (BPO) as substrate in tissue specimens from 26 fetal and 27 adult livers and 27 placentas. The average (±SEM) of GST activity in the cytosol was 1.80±0.18 (fetal liver), 3.05 ± 0.30 (adult liver) and 1.18 ±0.07 (placenta) nmol/min/mg. GST was also investigated in human fetal and… (More)
