Aim: Glutathione S-transferases (GST) take roles under stress conditions by the conjugation of Glutathione (GSH) to electrophilic substrates to increase their solubility and facilitating further metabolic processing. This is one of the main pathways functioning in stress resistance and, for dought stress, there is not yet a study on Pinus brutia Ten. which is a very important forest tree of Turkey.
