This gene encodes a mitochondrial protein, which is evolutionarily conserved. It is involved in the biogenesis of iron-sulfur clusters, which are required for normal iron homeostasis. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal recessive pyridoxine-refractory sideroblastic anemia. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for GLRX5 Gene
GLRX5 (Glutaredoxin 5) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GLRX5 Gene
Monothiol glutaredoxin involved in the biogenesis of iron-sulfur clusters (PubMed:20364084). Required for normal iron homeostasis. Required for normal regulation of hemoglobin synthesis by the iron-sulfur protein ACO1 (PubMed:20364084). May protect cells against apoptosis due to reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress (By similarity).
