Glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1 or GSTP-π; EC is a member of a super-gene family of phase II metabolic enzymes, which are involved in conjugation reaction in phase II metabolism of xenobiotics. GSTP1 catalyzes the reactions between glutathione and a variety of potentially toxic and carcinogenic electrophilic compounds. Moreover, GSTs also play an important role in modulating the induction of other enzymes and proteins for cellular functions, such as DNA repair[1]. GSTP1 genetic polymorphism is being shown to be an important determinant not only of response to cancer chemotherapy but also of individual susceptibility to cancer[2]. More specifically, analyses of somatic genome alterations in prostatic carcinoma cells have revealed that somatic inactivation of GSTP1, may serve as an initiating genome lesion for prostatic carcinogenesis[3].
