The reaction of glutathione (GSH) with trans-4-phenyl-3-buten-2-one (PBO) is readily reversible in aqueous solution with an apparent (pH-dependent) equilibrium constant at pH 8 of 6.4 x 10(2) M-1. Two class mu isoenzymes of GSH transferase from rat (M1-1 and M2-2) and two site specific mutants (M1-1/V9I and M2-2/I9V) catalyze the addition of GSH to PBO and the elimination of GSH from the two diastereomeric products (isomers A and B) of 4-(S-glutathionyl)-4-phenyl-2-butanone with varying degrees… CONTINUE READING
