GSTs have been divided into a number of subclasses, alpha, mu, pi, and theta. The classification was made on the basis of sequence similarity and immunological cross-reactivity. GSTs show a high level of specificity toward GSH but the electrophilic second substrate can vary significantly both between and within the classes in spite of… CONTINUE READING
