Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_C29E4.7, C29E4.7
gsto-1 encodes an experimentally verified thiol oxidoreductase and dehydroascorbate reductase, required for normal stress resistance; formally, GSTO-1 is an omega-class glutathione transferase (GST; EC, but it has little activity in vitro on classic GST substrates; GSTO-1 is expressed in postembryonic intestine; gsto-1(RNAi) induces hypersensitivity to heat-, arsenite-, juglone-, paraquat-, or cumene hydroperoxide-induced stresses, whereas overexpression of GSTO-1 enhances resistance to them; gsto-1 transcription is upregulated by stress; ELT-2 may directly activate gsto-1 transcription in developing gut via a 300-nucleotide sequence upstream of gsto-1's ATG start site.
