Summation

Glutathione S-transferase Kappa isozyme (GSTK1) is widely expressed in human tissues and exists as a dimer in mitochondria and peroxisomes. It has high activity towards aryl halides such as the model substrate 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB) to which it can conjugate with glutathionate (GS-) from glutathione (GSH) (Morel et al. 2004). Mouse, rat and human possess only one GST Kappa isozyme.
