An isoenzyme of glutathione S-transferase (adGST) was purified from liver intestine of the seashell (Asaphis dichotoma) by GST-Sepharose 4B affinity chromatography followed by reverse-phase HPLC. The enzyme has a pI value of 4.6 and is composed of two subunits each with a molecular weight of 23kDa. It exhibits different catalytic activities toward the substrates 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene, 7-chloro-4-nitrobenzo-2-oxa-1,3-diazole, ethacrynic acid, and p-nitrophenyl acetate and, fascinatingly, shows high activity toward CDNB. The amino acid composition of adGST was determined and found to be very similar to the Sloane squid GSTs. N-terminal analysis of the first 15 residues of adGST revealed that it has 73% sequence identity with the pig roundworm GSTs. The adGST shows characteristics similar to those of class sigma GSTs, as was indicated by its substrate specificity, N-terminal amino acid sequence, and amino acid composition.
