Summaries for PRDX6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRDX6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the thiol-specific antioxidant protein family. This protein is a bifunctional enzyme with two distinct active sites. It is involved in redox regulation of the cell; it can reduce H(2)O(2) and short chain organic, fatty acid, and phospholipid hydroperoxides. It may play a role in the regulation of phospholipid turnover as well as in protection against oxidative injury. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

    224 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    25035 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homotetramer. Interacts with GSTP1; mediates PRDX6 glutathionylation and regeneration. May interact with HTR2A (By similarity). Interacts with APEX1 and STH. May interact with FAM168B.
    • Irreversibly inactivated by overoxidation of Cys-47 (to Cys-SO(3)H) upon oxidative stress.
    • The active site is the redox-active Cys-47 oxidized to Cys-SOH. Unlike 2-Cys peroxiredoxins, PRDX6 conserves only this peroxidatic cysteine. To regenerate and activate the enzyme, the oxidized form is directly reduced to cysteine by glutathione and not thioredoxin.
