IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.11.1.9

Names

Accepted name:
glutathione peroxidase
Other names:
GSH peroxidase
reduced glutathione peroxidase
selenium-glutathione peroxidase
Systematic name:
glutathione:hydrogen-peroxide oxidoreductase

Reaction

Cofactor

Comments:

A protein containing a selenocysteine residue. Steroid and lipid hydroperoxides, but not the product of reaction of EC 1.13.11.12 lipoxygenase on phospholipids, can act as acceptor, but more slowly than H2O2 (cf. EC 1.11.1.12 phospholipid-hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase).
