Abstract

The naturally occurring steroid dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), when administered as a supplement to the diet of mice and rats, produces alterations in the relative concentrations of specific liver proteins; among these, a protein of M r ∼ 28 K is markedly induced by DHEA action. In the present study we identified the murine hepatic ∼ 28 kDa protein as glutathione S-transferase subtype GT-8.7. Glutathione S-transferases belong to a gene superfamily that encode closely related proteins which are induced in liver and other tissues by various chemicals, including carcinogens and chemoprotective agents such as dietary antioxidants. Based on the above finding, we evaluated glutathione S-transferase activity in cytosols and microsomes prepared from liver tissue of mice fed either a control diet or a DHEA-containing diet (0.45%, by weight). The specific activity of hepatic cytosolic glutathione S-transferase in mice treated with DHEA up to 7 days was either unchanged or slightly decreased when compared to controls; however, treatment for 14 days or longer resulted in significant increases in activity. The specific activity of microsomal glutathione S-transferase also was increased by long-term DHEA treatment; however, its activity was approximately one-tenth of that in corresponding cytosols.
