We have characterized a cluster of glutathione S-transferase genes located at 87B on the Drosophila polytene chromosome near the heat shock genes, hsp70. These genes, designated gst Ds in the glutathione S-transferase gene superfamily, are closely linked within a approximately 60-kilobase DNA segment. The gene family has a minimum of eight intronless genes organized in divergent orientations. Two of the genes are probably GST pseudogenes in that their open reading frames are shorter than… CONTINUE READING
