Recent works have shown the importance of reduction/oxidation (redox) regulation in various biological phenomena. Thioredoxin is a 12-kDa protein with redox-active dithiol in the active site -Cys-Gly-Pro-Cys- and constitutes a major thiol reducing system, the thioredoxin system. Thioredoxin plays multiple roles in cellular processes such as proliferation or apoptosis. It also promotes DNA binding of transcription factors such as NF-kappaB, AP-1, p53, and PEBP2. Overexpression of thioredoxin… CONTINUE READING
