Molecular cloning and heterologous expression of an alternatively spliced human Mu class glutathione S-transferase transcript.

Ross V.L., Board P.G.

Two cDNA clones encoding a new Mu class glutathione S-transferase (GST) have been isolated from a human testis cDNA library. Both clones are incomplete and appear to result from alternative splicing. One clone is missing the sequence encoding exon 4 and the other is missing exon 8. The complete sequence of the previously undescribed isoenzyme can be deduced from the two cDNA clones. This is the first report of alternative splicing in a GST transcript and may represent either a novel form of regulation in this multigene family or illegitimate transcription and experimental alternative splicing as part of the evolutionary process. By combining components from each clone a complete cDNA has been constructed and the encoded protein expressed in Escherichia coli. In general, the recombinant enzyme has relatively low activity when compared with all the previously described human Mu class GST isoenzymes.
