Ceriporiopsis subvermispora (C. subvermispora) is a selective degrader of lignin in the woody biomass. Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are multifunctional enzymes that play important roles in cellular detoxification and metabolism. The crystal structures of a GST of C. subvermispora, CsGST83044, in GSH-free and -bound forms were solved at 1.95 and 2.19 Å resolution, respectively. The structure of the GSH-bound form revealed that CsGST83044 can be categorized as an atypical-type of GST. In the GSH-bound form of CsGST83044, Asn22, Asn24, and Tyr46 are located closest to the sulfur atom and form hydrogen bonds with the thiol group. The functional mutagenesis indicated that they are critical for the enzymatic activities of CsGST83044. The critical residues of an atypical-type GST belonging to the GSTFuA class were revealed for the first time. A previous study indicated that CsGST83044 and another GST, CsGST63524, differ in substrate preference; CsGST83044 prefers smaller substrates than CsGST63524 for its esterase activity. The GSH-bound pocket of CsGST83044 turns out to be small, which may explain the preference for smaller substrates. Protein engineering of GSTs of C. subvermispora in the light of the obtained insight may pave a path in the future for utilization of the woody biomass.

A glutathione transferase that catalyzes the conjugation of electrophilic substrates to GLUTATHIONE. This enzyme has been shown to provide cellular protection against redox-mediated damage by FREE RADICALS.
A transferase that catalyzes the addition of aliphatic, aromatic, or heterocyclic FREE RADICALS as well as EPOXIDES and arene oxides to GLUTATHIONE. Addition takes place at the SULFUR. It also catalyzes the reduction of polyol nitrate by glutathione to polyol and nitrite.
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that regulates the activities of CYTOCHROME P450 REDUCTASE and GLUTATHIONE S-TRANSFERASE. It is found predominately in the CYTOPLASM, but moves to the CELL NUCLEUS in response to FANCE PROTEIN.
Conjugation of exogenous substances with various hydrophilic substituents to form water soluble products that are excretable in URINE. Phase II modifications include GLUTATHIONE; ACYLATION; and AMINATION. Phase II enzymes include GLUTATHIONE TRANSFERASE and GLUCURONOSYLTRANSFERASE. In a sense these reactions detoxify phase I reaction products.
Catalyzes the oxidation of GLUTATHIONE to GLUTATHIONE DISULFIDE in the presence of NADP+. Deficiency in the enzyme is associated with HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA. Formerly listed as EC 22.214.171.124.
