Summaries for GSTA5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GSTA5 Gene

  • The glutathione S-transferases (GST; EC catalyze the conjugation of reduced glutathiones and a variety of electrophiles, including many known carcinogens and mutagens. The cytosolic GSTs belong to a large superfamily, with members located on different chromosomes. For additional information on GSTs, see GSTA1 (MIM 138359).[supplied by OMIM, Sep 2008]
