Analysis Note

Protein determined by biuret.
Purified and assayed by a modification of the method of Simons and Vander Jagt.
Enzymatic activities are based on the conjugation of reduced glutathione with a second substrate. The individual proteins generally have activity with more than one class of substrate.

Unit Definition

One unit will conjugate 1.0 μmole of 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene with reduced glutathione per min at pH 6.5 at 25°C.

Physical form

Lyophilized powder containing Tris, phosphate salts, reduced glutathione and EDTA

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glutathione S-transferases are a family of proteins that catalyze the conjugation of reduced glutathione with a variety of hydrophobic chemicals containing electrophilic centers.
