Conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles.
Belongs to the GST superfamily. Alpha family. Contains 1 GST C-terminal domain. Contains 1 GST N-terminal domain.
The C-terminal domain may form a component of the hydrophobic substrate-binding site, but in contrast appears not to be directly involved in GSH binding and is not absolutely essential for catalytic activity.
