Conserved Site

Thiol peroxidase conserved site (IPR018219)

Short name: Tpx_CS


Escherichia coli protein Tpx [PMID: 7499381] is an antioxidant protein with a thiol peroxidase activity. It acts as an antioxidant enzyme by removing peroxides within the catalase- and peroxidase-deficient periplasmic space of E. coli. It is a small protein of 18 kDa whose sequence is well conserved in other bacterial species.
