The cytosolic fraction of adult Schistosoma mansoni contains glutathione S-transferase (EC 2.5.1.18) activity, determined with the prototype substrate 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene, that is 5- to 50-fold greater than that found in other metazoan parasites. A survey of several model substrates revealed that enzymes in male and female schistosomes have distinct… CONTINUE READING
