Evidence for a subgroup of thioredoxin h that requires GSH/Grx for its reduction.


Poplar thioredoxin h4 (popTrxh4) and a related CXXS type (popCXXS3) are both members of a plant thioredoxin h subgroup. PopTrxh4 exhibits the usual catalytic site WCGPC, whereas popCXXS3 harbors the non-typical active site WCMPS. Recombinant popTrxh4 and popCXXS3 are not reduced either by Arabidopsis thaliana NADPH-dependent thioredoxin reductases (NTR) A… (More)
