Gene: Mgst2 (microsomal glutathione S-transferase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mgst2
Name: microsomal glutathione S-transferase 2
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including glutathione binding activity; glutathione peroxidase activity; and glutathione transferase activity. Predicted to be involved in glutathione biosynthetic process; leukotriene biosynthetic process; and membrane lipid catabolic process. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum; nuclear envelope; and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human MGST2 (microsomal glutathione S-transferase 2); PARTICIPATES IN glutathione metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4-(ethoxymethylene)-2-phenyloxazol-5-one.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glutathione peroxidase MGST2; GST2; leukotriene C4 synthase MGST2; MGC41409; MGST-II; microsomal glutathione S-transferase II; microsomal GST-2; microsomal GST-II
