Protects cells against oxidative damage by catalyzing the reduction of hydrogen peroxide in the presence of reducing agent glutathione.3 In cellular membranes it may induce lipid peroxidation through the reduction of hydrogen peroxide or polyunsaturated fatty acid hydroperoxides. 4
Glutathione peroxidase is an enzyme which reduced lipid hydroperoxides into their corresponding alcohols. It also reduces free hydrogen peroxide in to water. In vivo it is responsible for protecting hemoglobin from oxidative breakdown1,2.
Note: At the reported pH optimum of 8.8, we have found the activity to be approx. 10 times that at pH 7.0. However, to remain consistent with literature and avoid complications arising from non-enzymatic oxidation of GSH, our unit is defined at pH 7.0.
One unit will catalyze the oxidation by H2O2 of 1.0 μmole of reduced glutathione to oxidized glutathione per min at pH 7.0 at 25 °C.
