25735211 Grx2 and Trx1 contribute significantly to neuronal integrity and could be clinically relevant in neuronal damage following perinatal asphyxia and other neuronal disorders.
24295294 The Grx2 system could help to keep Trx2/1 reduced during an oxidative stress, thereby contributing to the anti-apoptotic signaling.
22139372 Grx2 thiol redox regulation is essential for vertebrate embryonic development
21735102 These results suggest that Grx2a plays proliferative and anti-apoptotic roles under serum deprivation.
21437321 Exchange of [2Fe-2S] centers between glutaredoxin 2 and the cluster scaffold protein ISU, supports a direct link for glutaredoxin 2 and glutathione involvement in ISU promoted Fe-S cluster biosynthesis.
20929858 Both thioredoxin 2 and glutaredoxin 2 contribute to the reduction of the mitochondrial 2-Cys peroxiredoxin Prx3.
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20547138 Studies indicate that the mechanism of Grx2 protection against H(2)O(2)-induced apoptosis is likely associated with its ability to preserve complex I.
19292455 cluster signal of Grx2 is stable at positive potentials up to 0.5 V but that cluster destruction occurs readily when oxidative pulses in excess of this value are applied
18816065 Grx1 and Grx2 exhibit key catalytic similarities, including selectivity for protein-SSG substrates and a nucleophilic, double-displacement, monothiol mechanism exhibiting a strong commitment to catalysis.
