Product Details


Thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) is an NADPH-dependent oxidoreductase containing one FAD per subunit that reduces the active site disulfide in oxidised thioredoxin (Trx). The molecular weight of the isozymes from mammalian sources vary between 55-67 kDa as compared with 35 kDa in prokaryotes, plants or yeast. The substrate specificity of the mammalian enzyme is much broader than the prokaryotic enzyme reducing both mammalian and E. coli thioredoxins as well as well as non-disulfide substrates such selenite, lipoic acids, lipid hydroperoxides and hydrogen peroxide.
