Gene: GSTM2 (glutathione S-transferase mu 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GSTM2
Name: glutathione S-transferase mu 2
RGD ID: 735264
Description: Exhibits several functions, including anion binding activity; glutathione peroxidase activity; and glutathione transferase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular detoxification of nitrogen compound; long-chain fatty acid metabolic process; and regulation of release of sequestered calcium ion into cytosol. Localizes to cytosol; intercellular bridge; and sarcoplasmic reticulum.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: glutathione S-alkyltransferase M2; glutathione S-aralkyltransferase M2; glutathione S-aryltransferase M2; glutathione S-transferase 4; glutathione S-transferase M1; glutathione S-transferase M2 (muscle); glutathione S-transferase mu 2 (muscle); glutathione s-transferase, mu 2; GST class-mu 2; GST, muscle; GST4; GSTM; GSTM2-2; GTHMUS; MGC117303; S-(hydroxyalkyl)glutathione lyase M2
