Synechocystis PCC 6803 contains two types of glutathione peroxidase-like proteins (GPX-1 and GPX-2) that utilize NADPH but not reduced glutathione and unsaturated fatty acid hydroperoxides or alkyl hydroperoxides. The steady-state transcript level of gpx-1 gradually increased under oxidative stress conditions imposed by high light intensity, high salinity… CONTINUE READING
