Homologous Superfamily

Thioredoxin-like superfamily (IPR036249)

Short name: Thioredoxin-like_sf

Overlapping entries



Several biological processes regulate the activity of target proteins through changes in the redox state of thiol groups (S2 to SH2), where a hydrogen donor is linked to an intermediary disulphide protein. Such processes include the ferredoxin/thioredoxin system, the NADP/thioredoxin system, and the glutathione/glutaredoxin system [PMID: 15862094]. Several of these disulphide proteins share a common structure, consisting of a three-layer alpha/beta/alpha core. Proteins that contain domains with a thioredoxin-like fold include:
