Gene: Gsta2 (glutathione S-transferase alpha 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gsta2
Name: glutathione S-transferase alpha 2
CRRD ID: 2754
Description: Exhibits glutathione binding activity; glutathione transferase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in aging and xenobiotic catabolic process. Localizes to cytosol. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma and ovarian cancer. Orthologous to several human genes including GSTA2 (glutathione S-transferase alpha 2); PARTICIPATES IN glutathione conjugation pathway; glutathione metabolic pathway; phase I biotransformation pathway via cytochrome P450; INTERACTS WITH 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1-bromopropane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
