Check out PNAS 83: 8703-8707 (1986) and Parasite Immunology 10: 693-706

As far as I know E. coli doesn't have a GST.

I believe it is from the digenean blood fluke Schistosoma mansoni if this
helps. Unfortunately for those of us in the schisto world, GST is a
candidate schisto vaccine antigen which makes using the fusion
proteins in other vaccine studies a bit awkward!!!!!
