GSTA4 Conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles. This isozyme has a high catalytic efficiency with 4-hydroxyalkenals such as 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE). Belongs to the GST superfamily. Alpha family. Expressed at a high level in brain, placenta, and skeletal muscle and much lower in lung and liver. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
