Summaries for PRDX4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRDX4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is an antioxidant enzyme and belongs to the peroxiredoxin family. The protein is localized to the cytoplasm. Peroxidases of the peroxiredoxin family reduce hydrogen peroxide and alkyl hydroperoxides to water and alcohol with the use of reducing equivalents derived from thiol-containing donor molecules. This protein has been found to play a regulatory role in the activation of the transcription factor NF-kappaB. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PRDX4 Gene

PRDX4 (Peroxiredoxin 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PRDX4 include Scurvy. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Folate Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and antioxidant activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRDX3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRDX4 Gene

  • Probably involved in redox regulation of the cell. Regulates the activation of NF-kappa-B in the cytosol by a modulation of I-kappa-B-alpha phosphorylation.

    271 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    30540 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer or heterodimer with PRDX1; disulfide-linked, upon oxidation.
    • Irreversibly inactivated by overoxidation of Cys-124 (to Cys-SO(3)H) upon oxidative stress.
    • The active site is the redox-active Cys-124 oxidized to Cys-SOH. Cys-SOH rapidly reacts with Cys-245-SH of the other subunit to form an intermolecular disulfide with a concomitant homodimer formation. The enzyme may be subsequently regenerated by reduction of the disulfide by thioredoxin.
