    A purification scheme was devised that resulted in the resolution of a number of basic glutathione S-transferases from rat liver, three of which contained two subunits of molecular mass 23500 Da (i.e. Yb monomers). These were identified as transferases D, C and A by their elution positions from CM-cellulose and their specific activities towards a variety of substrates. Hybridization, immunotitration and peptide 'mapping' experiments demonstrated that transferases D, C and A comprise Yb2Yb2, Yb1Yb2 and Yb1Yb1 subunits.
