Entrez Gene Summary for GSTT2 Gene

  • Glutathione S-transferase (GSTs) theta 2 (GSTT2) is a member of a superfamily of proteins that catalyze the conjugation of reduced glutathione to a variety of electrophilic and hydrophobic compounds. Human GSTs can be divided into five main classes: Alpha, Mu, Pi, Theta, and Zeta. The theta class members GSTT1 and GSTT2 share 55% amino acid sequence identity and both are thought to have an important role in human carcinogenesis. The theta genes have a similar structure, being composed of five exons with identical exon/intron boundaries. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for GSTT2 Gene

GSTT2 (Glutathione S-Transferase Theta 2 (Gene/Pseudogene)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GSTT2 include colon adenoma and barrett's adenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Chemical carcinogenesis. GO annotations related to this gene include glutathione transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GSTT2B.
