Ascorbate may be the long-sought-after biological reductant of 1-Cys Prx, and this data represents a breakthrough in the thiol-specific antioxidant paradigm.
Identification of five new bradykinin potentiating peptides (BPPs) from Bothrops jararaca crude venom by using electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry after a two-step liquid chromatography
Binding Specificity of Sea Anemone Toxins to Nav 1.1-1.6 Sodium Channels
The data suggest that the toxicity of these toxins is highly dependent on the channel type but also that these toxins and their various physiological effects should be considered prototype models for the design of new and specific pharmacological tools.

Role of glutaredoxin 2 and cytosolic thioredoxins in cysteinyl‐based redox modification of the 20S proteasome
It is shown for the first time that the 20S proteasome purified from stationary‐phase cells was natively S‐glutathionylated, and cytoplasmic oxido‐reductases, namely thioredoxins 1 and 2, were also active in 20S proteasome deglutATHionylation by a similar mechanism.

It is shown that extracellular enolase mediates the colonization of small intestine mucosa by C. albicans using flow cytometry, immunoblots of conditioned media and confocal microscopy, the first direct evidence that C.Albicans' extrace cellular enolases mediates colonization on its primary translocation site.
