26601956 Prx2 glutathionylation is a favorable reaction that can occur in cells under oxidative stress and may have a role in redox signaling. GSH/Grx1 provide an alternative mechanism to thioredoxin and thioredoxin reductase for Prx2 recycling.
26210445 The results demonstrate that the antiproliferative effect of NO is hampered by Trx1 and Grx1 and support the strategy of weakening the thiolic antioxidant defenses when designing new antitumoral therapies.
25788646 Glutaredoxin 1 protects human retinal pigment epithelial cells from oxidative damage by preventing AKT glutathionylation.
24816595 A new function for GRX1 in neuronal copper homeostasis and in protection from copper-mediated oxidative injury.
24522867 Human Grx1 can catalyse reduction of Atox1 by glutathione but only in the presence of Cu(I).
24482236 Glrx overexpression increased soluble VEGF receptor 1 (sFlt) in endothelial cells via NF-kappaB-dependent Wnt5a production.
24270206 Levels of GLRX in the cerebrospinal fluid increase significantly in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.
24062305 Thioredoxin 1 is inactivated due to oxidation induced by peroxiredoxin under oxidative stress and reactivated by the glutaredoxin system.
23370801 sputum glutaredoxin-1 may have a role in asthma, while protein S may have a role in better lung function
22977247 Studies show that the glutaredoxin system with glutathione plays a backup role to keep oxidized thioredoxin 1 (Trx1) reduced in cells with loss of thioredoxin reductase 1 (TrxR1) activity.
