Abstract

The genome verified C. elegans free-living nematode model is a new tool for investigating gene expression in human and animal nematode parasites. There is limited information on designating glutathione S-transferase (GST) to specific classes in lower invertebrates such as nematodes. Following cloning, amino acid sequence alignment, recombinant expression and Western blotting we provide evidence of a new GST class in nematodes or lower invertebrates.
