Özet

Background. Several skin diseases are believed to be associated with oxidative stress. Defence against reactive oxygen species in the skin involves a variety of antioxidant enzymes, including glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs) catalysing the reaction between reduced glutathione, and a variety of exogenously and endogenously derived electrophilic compounds. The mammalian soluble GSTs are divided into five main classes: alpha (A), mu (M), pi (P), theta (T) and zeta (Z).
