Glutathione S-transferase A4 (GSTA4) is a member of the GST superfamily. The GSTA4 enzyme is involved in cellular defense against toxic, carcinogenic, and pharmacologically active electrophilic compounds. GSTA4 shows an especially high activity with reactive carbonyl compounds such as alk-2-enals. GSTA4 is extremely effective in catalyzing the conjugate addition of reduced glutathione to 4-hydroxynonenal, which is an important product of peroxidative degradation of arachidonic acid and a frequently used biomarker for oxidative damage in tissue. The GSTA4 enzyme is expressed at a high level in the brain, placenta, and skeletal muscle and much lower in the lung and liver.
GSTA4 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 246 amino acids (1-222) and having a molecular mass of 28.3kDa.GSTA4 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Specific activity is > 4,000 pmol/min/ug, and is defined as the amount of enzyme that conjugate 1.0 u mole of 1-chloro-2,4- dinitrobenzene (CDNB) with reduced glutathione per minute at pH 6.5 at 25C.
