Family relationships


Peroxiredoxins are a family of ubiquitous proteins found in all kingdoms of life. They are important for antioxidant defence and, in eukaryotes, participate in redox signalling [PMID: 20969484].

This family includes alkyl hydroperoxide reductase subunit C (AphC) from bacteria [PMID: 17114262], and peroxiredoxins 1 (PRDX1), 2 (PRDX2), 4 (PRDX4) and 6 (PRDX6).
