Sulfhydryl-mediated redox signaling in inflammation: role in neurodegenerative diseases
Posttranslational modifications of cysteine sulfhydryl (–SH) moieties, e.g., S-nitrosylation, S-glutathionylation, or S-sulfuration, play an important role in cellular response to oxidative stress.Expand
Upregulation of Glutaredoxin-1 Activates Microglia and Promotes Neurodegeneration: Implications for Parkinson's Disease.
AIMS Neuroinflammation and redox dysfunction are recognized factors in Parkinson's disease (PD) pathogenesis, and diabetes is implicated as a potentially predisposing condition. Remarkably,Expand
Novel chloroacetamido compound CWR-J02 is an anti-inflammatory glutaredoxin-1 inhibitor
Glutaredoxin (Grx1) is a ubiquitously expressed thiol-disulfide oxidoreductase that specifically catalyzes reduction of S-glutathionylated substrates. Grx1 is known to be a key regulator ofExpand
Critical Roles of Glutaredoxin in Brain Cells-Implications for Parkinson's Disease.
SIGNIFICANCE Glutaredoxin (Grx)1, an evolutionarily conserved and ubiquitous enzyme, regulates redox signal transduction and protein redox homeostasis by catalyzing reversible S-glutathionylation.Expand
