||Recombinant full length Human Peroxiredoxin 5; amino acids 53-214, 17kDa.
||This gene encodes a member of the peroxiredoxin family of antioxidant enzymes, which reduce hydrogen peroxide and alkyl hydroperoxides. The encoded protein may play an antioxidant protective role in different tissues under normal conditions and during inflammatory processes. This protein interacts with peroxisome receptor 1. The crystal structure of this protein in its reduced form has been resolved to 1.5 angstrom resolution. This gene uses alternate in-frame translation initiation sites to generate mitochondrial or peroxisomal/cytoplasmic forms. Three transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene.
||Specific activity : 2.12 U/mgOne unit will cause the oxidation of 1μmole of NADPH at 25°C at pH 7.5.
