Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.
Please check that this product meets your needs before purchasing. If you have any questions, special requirements or concerns, please send us an inquiry and/or contact our Support team ahead of purchase.

|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
FunctionInitiates extracellular glutathione (GSH) breakdown, provides cells with a local cysteine supply and contributes to maintain intracelular GSH level. It is part of the cell antioxidant defense mechanism. Catalyzes the transfer of the glutamyl moiety of glutathione to amino acids and dipeptide acceptors. Alternatively, glutathione can be hydrolyzed to give Cys-Gly and gamma glutamate. Isoform 3 seems to be inactive.
Tissue specificityDetected in fetal and adult kidney and liver, adult pancreas, stomach, intestine, placenta and lung. Isoform 3 is lung-specific. There are several other tissue-specific forms that arise from alternative promoter usage but that produce the same protein.
PathwaySulfur metabolism; glutathione metabolism.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in GGT1 are a cause of glutathionuria (GLUTH) [MIM:231950]; also known as gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase deficiency. It is an autosomal recessive disease.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the gamma-glutamyltransferase family.
modificationsN-glycosylated on both chains. Contains hexoses, hexosamines and sialic acid residues. Glycosylation profiles tested in kidney and liver tissues reveal the presence of tissue-specific and site-specific glycan composition, despite the overlap in composition among the N-glycans. A total of 36 glycan compositions, with 40 unique structures are observed. Up to 15 different glycans are observed at a single site, with site-specific variation in glycan composition. The difference in glycosylation profiles in the 2 tissues do not affect the enzyme activity.
