  • Function

    Monothiol glutaredoxin involved in the biogenesis of iron-sulfur clusters. Required for normal iron homeostasis. Required for normal regulation of hemoglobin synthesis by the iron-sulfur protein ACO1.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in GLRX5 are a cause of anemia sideroblastic pyridoxine-refractory autosomal recessive (PRARSA) [MIM:205950]. A form of sideroblastic anemia not responsive to pyridoxine. Sideroblastic anemia is characterized by anemia of varying severity, hypochromic peripheral erythrocytes, systemic iron overload secondary to chronic ineffective erythropoiesis, and the presence of bone marrow ringed sideroblasts. Sideroblasts are characterized by iron-loaded mitochondria clustered around the nucleus.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the glutaredoxin family. Monothiol subfamily.
    Contains 1 glutaredoxin domain.

Following up my message from yesterday, I at least confirmed with our source for this antibody that the immunogen is unique to GLRX5:

"Based on the BLAST results using the sequence of the immunizing peptide, it is uniquely 100% homologous to the human GLRX5 protein. In fact, the next highest homologous human protein is ATP5B with 50% homology, with no other glutaredoxins listed."

They also report: "We do not have a published reference where someone has used this antibody to detect endogenous GLRX5 protein."

If your results are impossible to interpret because of the multiple bands you are seeing, I recommend isolating a mitochondrial fraction of your samples, to enrich for GLRX5, and hopefully diminish the signal from the other proteins that the antibody is cross-reacting with. We have a kit for this preparation, if you are interested, with the catalogue number ab110170:

We also have another kit with a Dounce homogenizer, if you need it, and two others that are optimal for preparing samples from tissue, rather than cell cutures.

Your colleague and I discussed some issues your lab was having with Abcam's Glutaredoxin 5 antibody, ab86411. I am waiting for the lab to send any additional testing we have, which I will forward.

Given the scarcity of Glutaredoxin and Bola3 antibodies in our catalogue, we also discussed the possibility of a custom-made antibody, a service we do not provide. However, I did promise to send some recommendations of companies that make custom-made antibodies.
