Glutathione reductase was purified from pea seedlings using a procedure that included 2',5'-ADP Sepharose, fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC)-anion exchange, and FPLC-hydrophobic interaction chromatography. The purified glutathione reductase was resolved into six isoforms by chromatofocusing. The isoform eluting with an isoelectric point of 4.9 accounted for 18% of the total activity. The five isoforms with isoelectric points between 4.1 and 4.8 accounted for 82% of the activity…

Characterisation of pea cytosolic glutathione reductase expressed in transgenic tobacco

The isoform GOR2 was shown to have a slower migration on non-denaturing polyacrylamide gels compared with GOR1 and properties typical of GR enzymes from plant sources and was confirmed to be extraplastidial in organelle fractionation studies.

Cloning and characterisation of a cytosolic glutathione reductase cDNA from pea (Pisum sativum L.) and its expression in response to stress

A second glutathione reductase (GR) cDNA has been cloned and sequenced from pea and it seems likely that this is the only locus for this gene, which may play a role in the restoration of the post-stress redox state of the cytosolic glutATHione pool.

Purification and characterization of glutathione reductase from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

SUMMARY: Glutathione reductase was purified to homogeneity from the unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. The enzyme was a monomer with a molecular mass of 54-56 kDa as judged by gel filtration

Characterisation of a glutathione reductase gene and its genetic locus from pea (Pisum sativum L.)

It is suggested that a second, distinct gene encoding for the cytosolic form of GR should be present in peas, and the mismatch between the number of charge-separable isoforms in pea and the proposed number of genes suggests that different GR isoforms arise by some form of post-translational modification.

Gene cloning and expression of cytosolic glutathione reductase in rice (Oryza sativa L.).

It is suggested that the expression of the rice cytosolic GR gene is regulated via ABA-mediated signal transduction pathway under environmental stresses through the use of a putative cytosol isoform.

Synthesis and properties of glutathione reductase in stressed peas

The changes in GR-band profiles and the alteration in the kinetic properties are best explained as changes in the isoform population of pea GR in response to stress.

Simultaneous targeting of pea glutathione reductase and of a bacterial fusion protein to chloroplasts and mitochondria in transgenic tobacco.

The pea GR presequence is capable of co-targeting this enzyme or a foreign protein to chloroplasts and mitochondria in vivo, the first example of co -targeting by a higher plant preprotein.

Purification and kinetic properties of glutathione reductase from bovine liver

Kinetic data are consistent with a branching reaction mechanism previously proposed for GR from other sources by other studies, and the Ping Pong mechanism is a suitable model since the loss function is less than the other mechanisms.



Pea chloroplast glutathione reductase: purification and characterization.

It is shown that chloroplast glutathione reductase is relatively insensitive to NADPH, and in the absence of dithiothreitol the 60 kilodalton polypeptides showed a shift in apparent molecular weight on sodium dodecyl sulfate gels to 72 kilodaltons.

Purification, characterization, and immunological properties for two isoforms of glutathione reductase from eastern white pine needles.

Glutathione reductase (EC 1.2) was purified from Eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.) needles using affinity chromatography using 2', 5'-ADP-Sepharose, FPLC-anion-exchange,FPLC-hydrophobic interaction, and FP LC-gel filtration to recovery of two distinct isoforms of glutathione reduction.

Purification and characterization of glutathione reductase from Scots pine needles

Glutathione reductase (EC 1.6.2) was purified from Scots pine needles and the amino-acid composition was similar, with minor exceptions, to that of glutathione reducing enzyme obtained from rice embryos, human erythrocytes and E. coli.

L-Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase from Phaseolus vulgaris. Characterisation and differential induction of multiple forms from elicitor-treated cell suspension cultures.

Immunoprecipitates of bean phenylalanine ammonia-lyase synthesized both in vivo and in vitro showed the presence of multiple subunit types of identical Mr but differing in pI, which was associated with differential increased appearance of the high-pI, low-Km forms as compared to the two higher Km forms.

Studies on Respiratory Enzymes in Rice Kernel:Part VIII. Enzymatic Properties and Physical and Chemical Characterization of Glutathione Reductase from Rice Embryos

The pH optimum and kinetic properties of glutathione reductase from rice embryos have been determined and it is suggested that the enzyme molecule consists of two subunits, each containing 1 mole FAD.

Sink Metabolism in Tomato Fruit : IV. Genetic and Biochemical Analysis of Sucrose Accumulation.

It is speculated that a gene either encoding tomato fruit acid invertase or one required for its expression, plays an important role in determining sucrose accumulation.

Metabolic bases for differences in sensitivity of two pea cultivars to sulfur dioxide.

One basis for the relative insensitivity of the apparent photosynthesis of the pea cultivar Progress to SO(2) is the enhanced response of glutathione reductase, superoxide dismutase activities, and glutathion content.

Effect of water stress on the chloroplast antioxidant system: I. Alterations in glutathione reductase activity.

The effect of water stress on glutathione reductase and catalase activities was evaluated in leaf blades of field-grown winter wheat and no change inCatalase activity was observed in either flag or basal leaves from these same plants.

Induction of ascorbate peroxidase and glutathione reductase activities by interactions of mixtures of air pollutants.

Investigation of the response of ascorbate peroxidase and glutathione reductase activities in peas shows that plants respond similarly to a high concentration of a single air pollutant (ozone) and to mixtures of air pollutants when individual concentrations are low.
