General description

PRDX6 (peroxiredoxin 6) is a mammalian peroxidase belonging to the 1-Cys Prdx family, meaning it has 1-Cys at position 47 (Cys47). This protein is localized to cytoplasm, lysosomes, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and plasma membrane. It is a homodimeric protein which is especially observed in mammalian lungs.


Anti-Peroxiredoxin 6 (C-terminal) antibody produced in rabbit has been used for Western Blotting.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

PRDX6 (peroxiredoxin 6) has both peroxidase and phospholipase A2 (PLA2) activities and thus, is a bifunctional protein. In liver, as a peroxidase it confers protection against damage from ROS (reactive oxygen species) during ischemia-reperfusion injury. As a PLA2 it is involved in lung surfactant metabolism. It is also essential for normal nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-oxidase activity. In the livers of donors after brain death (DBD), this protein suppresses ischemia- and hypoxia-induced liver damage, and its expression is controlled by NF-κB (nuclear factor). In human and mouse neuronal cells, the delivery of PRDX6 protein leads to delay or suppression in oxidative stress-induced neuronal cell death.

Peroxiredoxin 6 contains a single redox-active cysteine and uses glutathione to catalyze the reduction of H2O2 and other organic peroxides. Overexpression of peroxiredoxin 6 in cells protects them against oxidative damage, whereas knockdown of this enzyme results in oxidative stress and apoptosis. The phospholipase A2 activity plays an important role in surfactant homeostasis. Peroxiredoxin 6 is a major antioxidant enzyme which functions in antioxidant defense and lung phospholipid metabolism.
