HUMAN GLUTATHIONE S-TRANSFERASE A1-1 BINDING WITH NATURALLY OCCURRING LIGANDS: ASSESSMENT BY DOCKING SIMULATIONS
Glutathione S-transferases are phase-II enzymes associated with detoxification and resistance to drugs and xenobiotics. The majority of human tumors and human tumor cell lines express significant amounts of alpha class Glutathione S-Transferase A1-1. The aim of present study was to examine hGSTA1-1 interaction with some naturally occurring ligands using docking simulations. Docking simulation usin...
