Summaries for GSTT2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GSTT2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene, glutathione S-transferase (GST) 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 includes GSTT1, GSTT2, and GSTT2B. GSTT2 and GSTT2B are nearly identical to each other, and share 55% amino acid identity with GSTT1. All three genes may play a role in human carcinogenesis. The GSTT2 gene is a pseudogene in some populations. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]

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 Cytochrome P450 - arranged by substrate type and Drug metabolism - cytochrome P450. GO annotations related to this gene include glutathione transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GSTT2B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GSTT2 Gene

  • Conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles. Has a sulfatase activity.
