Homogeneous preparations of the glutathione transferases from rat liver have been tested for their ability to catalyze a number of diverse nucleophilic reactions of GSH. Although disulfide interchange with GSSG or L-cystine, and cis-trans isomerization of maleic acid, are clearly promoted by thiols in solution, the reactions were not catalyzed by the… CONTINUE READING
