Human theta-class glutathione S-transferases (GST's) appear to play a critical role in the metabolism of a variety of environmental pollutants but in some cases the products of the reaction are carcinogenic. Crystals of a human theta-class GST, namely hGSTT2-2, have been grown from polyethylene glycol by the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. The crystals belong to the trigonal space group P3121 with cell dimensions of a= b = 94.0 and c = 120.5 Å. They contain two monomers in the asymmetric unit and diffract to 3.0 Å resolution.
