In plants, thioredoxins h are encoded by a multigenic family of genes (eight in Arabidopsis thaliana, at least five in Populus sp.). The multiplicity of these isoforms raises the question of their specificity. This review focuses on thioredoxins h in two plant models: Arabidopsis and poplar. Thioredoxins h can be divided into three different subgroups according to the analysis of their primary structure. This paper describes the biochemical properties of each subgroup. Recent data in the field… Expand

The plant thioredoxin system
TLDR
This review discusses the literature of plant thioredoxins with emphasis on recent findings in the field and based upon primary sequence analysis and subcellular localization, thiOREDoxins can be classified into different groups and subgroups. Expand
Thioredoxins inArabidopsis and other plants
TLDR
The numerous thioredoxin types encoded by the Arabidopsis genome are described, and evidence that they are present in all higher plants is provided, and some results suggest cross-talk between thiOREDoxins and glutaredoxins, the second family of disulfide dithiol reductase. Expand
Seed thioredoxin h.
TLDR
The present review on thioredoxin h systems in plant seeds focuses on occurrence, reaction mechanisms, specificity, target protein identification, three-dimensional structure and various applications. Expand
The Unprecedented Versatility of the Plant‎ Thioredoxin System.
TLDR
It is argued that these new developments help to understand why plants organize such a divergent composition of thiol redox networks and provide insights into the regulatory hierarchy that operates between them. Expand
PsTRXh1 and PsTRXh2 Are Both Pea h-Type Thioredoxins with Antagonistic Behavior in Redox Imbalances12
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PsTRXh1 is involved in the redox-imbalance control, possibly through its interaction with peroxiredoxins, and results indicate specific functions for the pea h-type TRXs so far described. Expand
A Novel Type of Thioredoxin Dedicated to Symbiosis in Legumes1[W][OA]
TLDR
A detailed study of this family in the model legume Medicago truncatula has established the existence of two isoforms that do not belong to any of the types previously described, and were given the name of Trxs s, s for symbiosis. Expand
Thioredoxin h System and Wheat Seed Quality
ABSTRACT Thioredoxin is one of the key systems controlling cellular redox balance in all living organisms. Plant thioredoxins are a diverse multigene family divided into two systems, theExpand
Molecular characterization of an h-type thioredoxin gene from grape
TLDR
The threedimensional modeling and docking studies allow for the proposal that VvTrx h2 could be reduced by a NADP-thioredoxin reductase rather than glutaredoxin, as shown for its ortholog from Arabidopsis. Expand
Cellular localization of a plant-specific thioredoxin-like protein, Arabidopsis thaliana tetratricopeptide domain-containing thioredoxin (AtTDX)
TLDR
Analysis of AtTDX protein using green fluorescent protein fusion constructs revealed the protein is located in both the cytosol and the nucleus of Arabidopsis, and should play important roles in both nucleus and cytOSol to protect against various environmental stresses. Expand
Comparative genomic study of the thioredoxin family in photosynthetic organisms with emphasis on Populus trichocarpa.
TLDR
This analysis revealed that higher plants and bryophytes have a more complex family compared to algae and cyanobacteria and to non-photosynthetic organisms, since poplar exhibits 49 genes coding for typical and atypical thioredoxins andThioredoxin reductases, namely one-third more than monocots such as Oryza sativa and S. bicolor.

The multigenic family of thioredoxin h in Arabidopsis thaliana: specific expression and stress response
TLDR
The results from studies using northern blots, semi-quantitative RT-PCR and transgenic promoter–GUS fusions provide strong evidence that the members of the AtTRXh gene family show expression levels that vary among different plant organs. Expand
Plant thioredoxin h: an animal-like thioredoxin occurring in multiple cell compartments.
TLDR
Analysis of cell fractions from the endosperm of germinating castor beans revealed that thioredoxin h occurs in the cytosol, endoplasmic reticulum, and mitochondria. Expand
Plant thioredoxins: the multiplicity conundrum
TLDR
In this review, the current state of knowledge regarding the function of plant thioredoxins representing all systems and classes is summarized. Expand
Mitochondria of plant leaves contain two thioredoxins. Completion of the thioredoxin profile of higher plants
TLDR
Mitochondria from spinach, soybean, and potato leaves contain two different mt -thioredoxins in about equal amount whereas potato tuber mitochondria possess only one such protein, suggesting that a specific process, as yet unknown, of photoautotrophic metabolism is linked to a thioredoxin system in green plant mitochondria. Expand
Cloning and expression of a distinct subclass of plant thioredoxins.
TLDR
The predicted proteins showed highest homology to plant thioredoxins of the h class yet form a distinct subgroup that is characterized by a high level of sequence conservation (95.4-97.7% identity). Expand
Evidence for five divergent thioredoxin h sequences in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
Very complex diversity of thioredoxins h is probably common to all higher plants, since the Arabidopsis sequences appear to have diverged very early, at the beginning of plant speciation, which allows the transduction of a redox signal into multiple pathways. Expand
The Arabidopsis Plastidial Thioredoxins
TLDR
The study confirms the strict specificity of fructose-bisphosphatase for Trx f, reveals that some Trxs are unable to activate NADP-malate dehydrogenase, and shows that the new x-type is the most efficient substrate for peroxiredoxin while being inactive toward the two other targets. Expand
In vivo functional discrimination between plant thioredoxins by heterologous expression in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
In vivoexpression of plant thioredoxins in yeast trx1, trx2 double mutant cells and analysis of different phenotypes clearly indicate that specific interactions between plantThioredoxin and their targets occur in vivo. Expand
A strategy for the identification of proteins targeted by thioredoxin
TLDR
These findings open the door to the identification of proteins targeted by thioredoxin in a wide range of systems, thereby enhancing the understanding of its function and extending its technological and medical applications. Expand
Organelle-specific NADPH thioredoxin reductase in plant mitochondria.
TLDR
It is shown that potato tuber mitochondrial lysates contain an enzyme of 40 kDa monomer mass, utilizing NADPH and plant (but not bacterial) thioredoxins as substrates, distinct from a 35 kDa reductase of cytosolic origin. Expand
