Glutathione peroxidase (GPx) is an enzyme with peroxidase activity whose main biological role is to protect the organism from oxidative damage. The biochemical function of glutathione peroxidase is to reduce lipid hydroperoxides to their corresponding alcohols and to reduce free hydrogen peroxide to water (Muller et al., ). The Glutathione Peroxidase Gene Family in Gossypium hirsutum: Genome-Wide Identification, Classification, Gene Expression and Functional Analysis 16 March | Scientific Reports, Vol. 7, No. 1 Selenocysteine Insertion at a Predefined UAG Codon in a Release Factor 1 (RF1)-depleted Escherichia coli Host Strain Bypasses Species Barriers in.

Glutathione peroxidase 2 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the GPX2 gene.. This gene is a member of the glutathione peroxidase family encoding a selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase that is one of two isoenzymes responsible for the majority of the glutathione-dependent hydrogen peroxide-reducing activity in the epithelium of the gastrointestinal tract. Expression of extracellular glutathione peroxidase (eGPx) mRNA in human airway epithelial cells (means ± SE). No significant difference in the expression of eGPx mRNA was found in cells from individuals with asthma, chronic beryllium disease (CBD), and smoke exposure (P > ), but in all 3 groups, levels were significantly higher than in.

Glutathione peroxidase family (GPXs) is an important member of antioxidant system which metabolizes intracellular ROS and maintains homeostasis of cells. Altered expressions of GPXs enzymes, especially GPX1, have been described in a variety of human cancers. Glutathione is a major cellular thiol that is maintained in the reduced state by glutathione reductase (GR), which is encoded by two genes in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana ; GR1 and GR2). This study addressed the role of GR1 in hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) responses through a combined genetic, transcriptomic, and redox profiling approach. To identify the potential role of changes in.

Redox regulation of human glutathione peroxidase gene expression by Douglas B. Cowan Download PDF EPUB FB2

Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (e.g. H 2 O 2, nitric oxide) confer redox regulation of essential cellular signaling pathways such as cell differentiation, proliferation, migration and addition, classical regulation of gene expression or activity, including gene transcription to RNA followed by translation to the protein level, by transcription factors (e.g.

NF-κB, HIF-1α Cited by: The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the glutathione peroxidase family, members of which catalyze the reduction of organic hydroperoxides and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) by glutathione, and thereby protect cells against oxidative damage.

Other studies indicate that H2O2 is also essential for growth-factor mediated signal transduction, mitochondrial function, and maintenance of thiol redox. Extracellular glutathione peroxidase induction in asthmatic lungs: evidence for redox regulation of expression in human airway epithelial cells SUZY A.

COMHAIR Departments of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Cancer Biology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, USACited by: Glutathione peroxidase activity did not change in the blood and showed increasing tendency in the liver, and significant increase in the kidney. Expression of KEAP1 gene showed up-regulation in the liver, and down-regulation in the kidney, but overexpression of NRF2 gene was found in the liver and kidney at the highest by: 2.

Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx) is a cytosolic enzyme that catalyzes the reduction of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen as well as catalyzing the reduction of peroxide radicals to alcohols and oxygen. 18 As with SOD, GPx activity and total enzyme content increase during late gestation in two of the experimental animals studied: guinea pig and.

We tested the hypothesis that LA affects the intracellular redox status and induces NQO1 expression using the human promyelocytic HL leukemia cells. We showed that treatment by LA maintains HL cells in a relatively reduced state, supported by the dose/time-dependent increase in the activities of glutathione peroxidase and glutathione.

Asbestos-induced Up-regulation of AP-1 Proto-Oncogenes Is Down-regulated by N-Acetyl-l-Cysteine and Glutathione Ester and Up-regulated by BSO. Cells were pretreated with N-acetyl-l-cysteine (10 or 20 mmol/L for 20 hours), glutathione ester (5 and 10 mmol/L for 1 hour), or BSO (5, 10, or 50 μmol/L for 20 hours) before exposing them to asbestos.

Pretreatment of cells with N-acetyl-l-cysteine. Genes coding for proteins engaged in redox systems were expressed differently in each cell line; transcripts for thioredoxin, peroxiredoxin and glutathione peroxidase showed higher expression in HCT cells whereas those for glutathione transferases and copper chaperone were more abundant in.

Nuclear factor erythroid-2–related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a redox-sensitive transcription factor that regulates the expression of electrophile and xenobiotic detoxification enzymes and efflux proteins, which confer cytoprotection against oxidative stress and apoptosis in normal cells.

It is the case of the glutathione S reductase gene (GSR, FR = ± ) and the glutathione peroxidase 2 gene (GPX2, FR = ± ) that are both involved in glutathione metabolism by controlling its redox status and cycling between the oxidized and reduced form (Wu et al., ).
