  • Function

    Could play a major role in protecting mammals from the toxicity of ingested organic hydroperoxides. Tert-butyl hydroperoxide, cumene hydroperoxide and linoleic acid hydroperoxide but not phosphatidycholine hydroperoxide, can act as acceptors.
  • Tissue specificity

    Mostly in liver and gastrointestinal tract, not found in heart or kidney.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the glutathione peroxidase family.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Mainly cytoplasmic.
