Purification and characterization of phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase from rat testis mitochondrial membranes.

Abstract

The selenoenzyme phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase (PHGPx) is highly expressed in rat testis, where it is under gonadotropin control. In this organ a relevant PHGPx activity is strongly linked to mitochondria of cells undergoing differentiation to spermatozoa. This prompted a study on the possible difference between the soluble and the… (More)
