glutathione gamma-glutamylcysteinyltransferase activity

Known as: gamma-glutamylcysteine dipeptidyl transpeptidase activity, glutathione:poly(4-glutamyl-cysteinyl)glycine 4-glutamylcysteinyltransferase activity, phytochelatin synthase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: glutathione + Glu(-Cys)(n)-Gly = Gly + Glu(-Cys)(n+1)-Gly. [EC:2.3.2.15]
