Glutathione S-transferase (GST) Protein

This recombinant Glutathione S-transferase (GST) protein is encoded by the parasitic Schistosoma japonicum GST gene. The parasite GST protein shows ~60% homogy with class Mu isozymes of mammalian GST (EC The mammalian GST super family consists of four classes: Alpha, Mu, Pi, and Theta. GST catalyzes the conjugation of reduced glutathione to electrophiles on many substrates, thus detoxifying endogenous compounds such as lipid peroxides.

Many recombinant proteins are expressed as glutathione S-transferase fusion proteins to facilitate purification. The recombinant GST can be used as a negative control for recombinant growth factors expressed as GST fusion proteins. The C-terminal end of the protein harbors an engineered thrombin cleavage site and a protein kinase A (PKA) phosphorylation site. The protein can therefore be radioactively labeled with 32P-g-ATP and PKA.
