SpLigG is one of the three glutathione transferases (GSTs) involved in the process of lignin breakdown in the soil bacterium Sphingobium sp. SYK-6. Sequence comparisons showed that SpLigG and several proteobacteria homologues form an independent cluster within cysteine-containing GSTs. The relationship between SpLigG and other GSTs was investigated. The X-ray structure and biochemical properties of SpLigG indicate that this enzyme belongs to the omega class of glutathione transferases. However… CONTINUE READING
