GSTZ1 is part of the glutathione S-transferase super-family which encodes multifunctional enzymes vital in the detoxification of electrophilic molecules, including carcinogens, mutagens, and several therapeutic drugs, by conjugation with glutathione. GSTZ1 participates in the catabolism of phenylalanine and tyrosine. Thus defects in GSTZ1 cause harsh metabolic disorders including alkaptonuria, phenylketonuria and tyrosinaemia. GSTZ1 is a bifunctional protein which has minimal glutathione-conjugating activity with 7-chloro-4-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazole and maleylacetoacetate isomerase activity. GSTZ1 has low glutathione peroxidase activity with T-butyl and cumene hydroperoxides. GSTZ1 catalyzes the glutathione dependent oxygenation of dichloroacetic acid to glyoxylic acid.
GSTZ1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 236 amino acids (1-216 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 26.2 kDa. The GSTZ1 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by conventional chromatography.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The GSTZ1 protein solution contains 1x PBS pH-7.4 and 10% glycerol.
