Conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles. Regulates negatively CDK5 activity via p25/p35 translocation to prevent neurodegeneration. Homodimer. Interacts with CDK5. Belongs to the GST superfamily. Pi family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
