Rat FAD-dependent sulfhydryl oxidase was purified; partial sequencing indicated that it was homologous to human quiescin Q6. A cDNA (GenBank accession no. AF285078) was cloned from rat seminal vesicles, and active recombinant sulfhydryl oxidase was expressed in Chinese hamster ovary epithelial cells. This 2472-nucleotide cDNA has an open reading frame of(More)
Rat quiescin/sulphydryl oxidase (rQSOX) introduces disulphide bridges into peptides and proteins with the reduction of molecular oxygen to hydrogen peroxide. Its occurrence has been previously highlighted in a wide range of organs by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and Northern blot analyses, methods that have provided information(More)
Flavoproteins of the quiescin/sulfhydryl oxidase (QSOX) family catalyze oxidation of peptide and protein thiols to disulfides with the reduction of oxygen to hydrogen peroxide. We report here the molecular cloning of a new putative sulfhydryl oxidase cDNA, rQSOX-L (GenBank Accession no ), from adult rat brain and its expression studied by RT-PCR, Northern(More)
The distribution of the sulfhydryl oxidase QSOX in the rat brain was mapped using immunohistochemistry. QSOX is specifically expressed by neurons throughout the rostrocaudal extent of the brain as well as in the spinal cord. Although a majority of neurons express QSOX, different intensities of labeling were observed depending on the area: the strongest(More)
