Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab82727 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Applications

    SDS-PAGE

  • Purity
    > 95 % SDS-PAGE.

  • Form
    Lyophilised
  • Additional notes

    The mammalian thioredoxin reductases (TrxRs) are a family of selenocysteine containing pyridine nucleotide-disulfide oxido-reductases. All the mammalian TrxRs

    are homologous to glutathione reductase with respect to primary structure including the conserved redox catalytic site (-Cys-Val-Asn-Val-Gly-Cys-) but distinctively with

    a C-terminal extension containing a catalytically active penultimate selenocysteine (SeCys) residue in the conserved sequence(-Gly-Cys-SeCys-Gly).

  • Function
    Isoform 1 may possess glutaredoxin activity as well as thioredoxin reductase activity and induces actin and tubulin polymerization, leading to formation of cell membrane protrusions. Isoform 4 enhances the transcriptional activity of estrogen receptors alpha and beta while isoform 5 enhances the transcriptional activity of the beta receptor only. Isoform 5 also mediates cell death induced by a combination of interferon-beta and retinoic acid.
  • Tissue specificity
    Isoform 1 is expressed predominantly in Leydig cells (at protein level). Also expressed in ovary, spleen, heart, liver, kidney and pancreas and in a number of cancer cell lines. Isoform 4 is widely expressed with highest levels in kidney, testis, uterus, ovary, prostate, placenta and fetal liver.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the class-I pyridine nucleotide-disulfide oxidoreductase family.
    Contains 1 glutaredoxin domain.
  • Domain
    The N-terminal glutaredoxin domain found in isoform 1 does not contain the C-P-Y-C redox-active motif normally found in glutaredoxins and has been found to be inactive in classical glutaredoxin assays.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The N-terminus of isoform 5 is blocked.
    ISGylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm and Cytoplasm. Nucleus.
  • Information by UniProt
