- Peroxiredoxins (Prxs) are a family of peroxidases that reduce peroxides, with a conserved cysteine residue (the peroxidatic Cys) serving as the site of oxidation by peroxides. Peroxides oxidize the peroxidatic Cys-SH to Cys-SOH, which then reacts with another cysteine residue (typically the resolving Cys [C R]) to form a disulfide that is subsequently reduced by an appropriate electron donor. On the basis of the location or absence of the C R, Prxs are classified into 2-Cys, atypical 2-Cys, and 1-Cys Prx subfamilies. In addition to their peroxidase activity, members of the 2-Cys Prx subfamily appear to serve as peroxide sensors for other proteins and as molecular chaperones. During catalysis, the peroxidatic Cys-SOH of 2-Cys Prxs is occasionally further oxidized to Cys-SO 2H before disulfide formation, resulting in inactivation of peroxidase activity. This hyperoxidation, which is reversed by the ATP-dependent enzyme sulfiredoxin, modulates the sensor and chaperone functions of 2-Cys Prxs. The peroxidase activity of 2-Cys Prxs is extensively regulated via tyrosine and threonine phosphorylation, which allows modulation of the local concentration of the intracellular messenger H 2O 2. Finally, 2-Cys Prxs interact with a variety of proteins, with such interaction having been shown to modulate the function of the binding partners in a reciprocal manner. © 2011 Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
