Equilibrium unfolding of class pi glutathione S-transferase.


The equilibrium unfolding transition of class pi glutathione S-transferase, a homodimeric protein, from porcine lung was monitored by spectroscopic methods (fluorescence emission and ultraviolet absorption), and by enzyme activity changes. Solvent (guanidine hydrochloride and urea)-induced denaturation is well described by a two-state model involving significant populations of only the folded dimer and unfolded monomer. Neither a folded, active monomeric form nor stable unfolding intermediates were detected. The conformational stability, delta Gu (H2O), of the native dimer was estimated to be about 25.3 +/- 2 kcal/mol at 20 degrees C and pH6.5.
