Monothiol glutaredoxins: a common domain for multiple functions
Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique; Torre Ruiz, M. A. de la
Monothiol glutaredoxins with the CGFS sequence at the active site are widespread among prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Two subclasses exist, those with a single glutaredoxin domain and those with a thioredoxin-like region followed by one or more glutaredoxin domains. Studies in Saccharomyces cerevisiae have demonstrated the role of the Grx5 protein in the biogenesis of iron-sulphur clusters. Grx5 homologues in other eukaryotes could carry out similar functions. Two S. cerevisiae monothiol glutaredoxins with the thioredoxin-like extension, Grx3 and Grx4, are modulators of the transcriptional activator Aft1, which regulates iron uptake in yeast. The human PICOT protein is a Grx3/Grx4 homologue with the same hybrid primary structure, which regulates protein kinase C activity and may participate in physiological processes such as control of cardiac function. Therefore, monothiol glutaredoxins share a common basic structural motif and biochemical mechanism of action, while participating in a diversity of cellular functions as protein redox regulators.
