Glutathione, a tripeptide with the sequence gamma-Glu-Cys-Gly, exists either in a reduced form with a free thiol group or in an oxidized form with a disulfide between two identical molecules. We describe here briefly the pathways involved in the synthesis, reduction, polymerization, and degradation of glutathione, as well as its distribution throughout the plant and its redox buffering capacities. The function of glutathione in xenobiotic and heavy metal detoxification, plant development, and… Expand
Redox regulation in photosynthetic organisms: focus on glutathionylation.
TLDR
The methods employed for identification of glutathionylated proteins in photosynthetic organisms are described and the targets and the possible physiological functions of protein glutATHionylation are reviewed, focusing on the role of GRXs. Expand
The emerging roles of protein glutathionylation in chloroplasts.
TLDR
The possible mechanisms of protein glutathionylation are presented and the chloroplast systems of glutaredoxins and thioredoxins are introduced, in order to pinpoint the biochemical properties that make some glutaredoxin isoforms the master enzymes in deglutathionyation. Expand
Redundancy and Crosstalk Within the Thioredoxin and Glutathione Pathways: A New Development in Plants
TLDR
In the cytosol, in absence of NTR, Trxs are reduced by a GSH-dependent pathway, while in the absence of GR oxidized glutathione (GSSG) is reduced by the NTR Trx pathway, which indicates that Trxs have evolved a specific function of control of the light dark metabolism. Expand

TLDR
It has been proposed that glutaredoxins can act either as scaffolds for the de novo synthesis of iron-sulphur clusters or as carrier proteins for the transfer and delivery of preassembled iron-methionine sulphoxide clusters. Expand
Interaction between heavy metals and thiol-linked redox reactions in germination.
TLDR
The importance of redox proteins in plant cell metabolism and defence is discussed, special focus is given to TRX, which are involved in detoxification of ROS and also to their targets. Expand
The thioredoxin-mediated recycling of Arabidopsis thaliana GRXS16 relies on a conserved C-terminal cysteine.
TLDR
Arabidopsis GRXS16 reacted efficiently with oxidized forms of glutathione, leading to the formation of an intramolecular disulfide between Cys158 and the semi-conserved Cys215, which has a midpoint redox potential of - 298 mV at pH 7.0 and is reduced by plastidial thioredoxins (TRXs) but not GSH. Expand
Glutathione, Glutaredoxins, and Iron.
TLDR
The ability of GSH to coordinate iron in different complexes with or without proteins needs further investigation and the discovery of new Fe-GSH complexes and their physiological functions will significantly advance the understanding of cellular iron homeostasis. Expand
Immunolocalization of glutathione biosynthesis enzymes in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
The localization of these enzymes to the stroma of chloroplasts has implications for the redox-regulation of GCL and plant glutathione biosynthesis. Expand
Glutaredoxins in thiol/disulfide exchange.
TLDR
A condensed summary of the current knowledge of thiol/disulfide exchange reactions catalyzed by Grxs regarding the mechanistic, structural, and functional aspects will be of high importance for future research directions, gaining novel insights into redox signaling in general, and the role of Grxs in particular. Expand
Glutathione, Glutaredoxins, and Iron.
TLDR
Interestingly, GSH analogues that function as major low-molecular-weight thiols in organisms lacking GSH resemble the functions in iron homeostasis. Expand

Plant Glutathione Peroxidases Are Functional Peroxiredoxins Distributed in Several Subcellular Compartments and Regulated during Biotic and Abiotic Stresses1[W]
TLDR
The abundance of some Gpxs is modified in plants subjected to environmental constraints, generally increasing during fungal infection, water deficit, and metal stress, and decreasing during photooxidative stress, showing that Gpx proteins are involved in the response to both biotic and abiotic stress conditions.

Thioredoxins, glutaredoxins, and glutathionylation: new crosstalks to explore
TLDR
This review focuses on oxidants and redox signaling with particular emphasis on recent developments in the study of functions, regulation mechanisms and targets of TRX, GRX and glutathionylation, and presents the complex emerging interplay between these three components of redox-signaling networks.

Identification of novel targets of cyanobacterial glutaredoxin.
TLDR
The studies suggest Grx2061 in cyanobacteria plays an important role in redox network and its targets are as extensive as that in other organisms. Expand

TLDR
This review focuses on the formation of mixed disulfides between glutathione and proteins, also known as glutathionylation, and the regulatory role of this post-translational modification and the role of protein disulfide oxidoreductases (thioredoxin/thiOREDoxin reductase, glutaredoxin, proteindisulfide isomerase) in the reversibility of this process.

Glutathionylation of chloroplast thioredoxin f is a redox signaling mechanism in plants.
TLDR
It is suggested that a crosstalk between the TRX and glutathione systems mediates a previously uncharacterized form of redox signaling in plants in stress conditions. Expand
Structural Basis for the Redox Control of Plant Glutamate Cysteine Ligase*
TLDR
Known mutations in the Arabidopsis GCL gene affect residues in the close proximity of the active site and thus explain the decreased GSH levels in mutant plants, and the mutation in rax1-1 plants causes impaired binding of cysteine. Expand

TLDR
Results show that selenium is essential for the activity of thioredoxin reductase, explaining why this trace element is required for cell proliferation by effects on thiOREDoxin-dependent control of the intracellular redox state, ribonucleotide reduct enzyme production of deoxyribonucleotides, or activation of transcription factors.

The plant multigenic family of thiol peroxidases.
TLDR
The analysis of the Arabidopsis thaliana genome indicates that at least 17 isoforms of thioredoxin-dependent peroxidases are expressed in various plant compartments, and the role of these proteins is discussed in terms of electron donor and substrate specificities and in light of their expression and localization.

TLDR
The disulfide bond in Grx5 could be reduced by GSH but at a rate at least 20 times slower than that observed for the reduction of glutaredoxin 1 from E. coli, which could suggest that GSH may not be the physiologic reducing agent of GrX5. Expand
