- n. Any of a family of small redox enzymes that use glutathione as a cofactor
Sorry, no etymologies found.
So far, UF researchers have pinpointed one, a gene involved in production of glutaredoxin, a protein that helps plants deal with environmental stress.
That intermediary is a human protein called GRX2, a glutaredoxin that helps cells deal with oxidative damage on other proteins.
Bacteria also face to oxidative stress, as indicated by the increase expression of phbC (poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate polymerase), trxB2 (thioredoxin) and grxC1 (glutaredoxin).
a GSH-mixed disulfide mechanism for glutaredoxin catalysis in contrast to the dithiol mechanism for thioredoxin.
GTO3 encodes an omega class glutathione-S-transferase having glutaredoxin activity, which is suggested to maintain an adequate redox state of specific target proteins, not in the general defense against oxidative stress [
