Gene Information

human ... GLRX2(51022)

General description

GLRX2 (glutaredoxin 2) belongs to the Trx (thioredoxins) superfamily of thiol-disulfide oxidoreductases. The protein has an atypical active site motif and two additional cysteines that participate in the formation of a disulfide bond. The protein is present in the mitochondria and has a mass of 18kDa. The gene is mapped to human chromosome 1q31.


Glutaredoxin-2, mitochondrial Precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

GLRXs (glutaredoxins) are involved in the deglutathionylation of target proteins. Protein S-glutathionylation is crucial for thiol-redox signaling in cellular processes. GRX2 is associated with mitochondrial membrane thiol proteins. Upregulation of GLRX2 suppresses hydrogen peroxide-mediated cell death and protects complex I activity in mitochondria.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST74232.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Mitochondrial thioredoxin (Trx) is critical for defense against oxidative stress-induced cell apoptosis. To date, mitochondrial thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) is the only known enzyme catalyzing Trx2 reduction in mitochondria. However, TrxR is sensitive to inactivation by exo/endogenous electrophiles, for example, 4-hydroxynonenal...

Glutaredoxin 2 (Grx2) is a glutathione-dependent oxidoreductase involved in the maintenance of mitochondrial redox homeostasis. Grx2 was first characterized as mitochondrial protein, but alternative mRNA variants lacking the transit peptide-encoding first exon were demonstrated for human and proposed for mouse....
