Peroxiredoxin 5 (PRDX5) was the last member to be identified among the six mammalian peroxiredoxins. It is also the unique atypical 2-Cys peroxiredoxin in mammals. Like the other five members, PRDX5 is widely expressed in tissues but differs by its surprisingly large subcellular distribution. In human cells, it has been shown that PRDX5 can be addressed to(More)
Peroxiredoxins (PRDXs) are a family of peroxidases well conserved throughout evolution. Human PRDX3 and PRDX5, two mitochondrial PRDXs, have been implicated in several pathologies associated with oxidative stress. However, the individual role of PRDX3 and PRDX5 in cellular antioxidant defense has never been well established due to their overlapping(More)
In human, the subcellular targeting of peroxiredoxin-5 (PRDX5), a thioredoxin peroxidase, is dependent on the use of multiple alternative transcription start sites and two alternative in-frame translation initiation sites, which determine whether or not the region encoding a mitochondrial targeting sequence (MTS) is translated. In the present study, the(More)
Peroxiredoxin-5 (PRDX5) is an antioxidant enzyme which differs from the other peroxiredoxins with regards to its enzymatic mechanism, its high affinity for organic peroxides and peroxynitrite and its wide subcellular distribution. In particular, the mitochondrial isoform of PRDX5 confers a remarkable cytoprotection toward oxidative stress to mammalian(More)
Redox changes are observed in neurodegenerative diseases, ranging from increased levels of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species and disturbance of antioxidant systems, to nitro-oxidative damage. By reducing hydrogen peroxide, peroxynitrite, and organic hydroperoxides, peroxiredoxins (Prdxs) represent a major potential protective barrier against nitro-oxidative(More)
