The expression of the GST1, GST2, and GST3 loci in fetal, neonatal, and infant tissues has been studied using starch gel electrophoresis and chromatofocusing. Each locus demonstrated developmental changes in expression, some of which were specific to a single tissue while others occurred in several tissues. GST1 was not usually expressed in any of the tissues studied before 30 weeks of gestation but steadily increased thereafter until adult levels were reached in late infancy. In neonates and older infants the frequencies of the GST1*0, GST1*1, and GST1*2 alleles were 0.79, 0.07, and 0.14, respectively. GST2 was always expressed in liver and adrenal but was only weakly expressed in spleen, cardiac muscle, and diaphragm. In kidney this locus was not usually expressed until nearly 1 year after birth. The GST3 isoenzymes were present in all fetal, neonatal, and infant tissues, although their expression in liver decreased after 30 weeks of gestation. Other isoenzymes with fast anodal mobilities were also identified in several tissues; these are believed to be GST3 isoenzymes that have undergone posttranslational modification rather than products of the putative GST4 locus. No specifically fetal isoenzymes were detected.
