Introduction

PRDX5 belongs to the peroxiredoxin family of antioxidant enzymes, which reduce hydrogen peroxide and alkyl hydroperoxides with reducing equivalents supplied through the thioredoxin system. PRDX5 has an antioxidant protective function in different tissues under normal conditions and during inflammatory processes. Peroxiredoxin-5 interacts with peroxisome receptor 1 and is involved in intracellular redox signaling. PRDX5 is involved in intracellular redox signaling. Peroxiredoxin-5 is a significant antioxidant protein of lung epithelial cells for its expression in the human lung increases during inflammation. PRDX5 expression is upregulated in osteoarthritis. PRDX5 may be significant in mitochondrial genome stability. Peroxiredoxin-5 has a protective role in human tendon cells against oxidative stress by reducing apoptosis and upholding collagen synthesis.

Description

PRDX5 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 162 amino acids (53-214 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 17 kDa.
The PRDX5 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

The PRDX5 solution contains 20mM HEPES buffer (pH 7.4).

Stability

Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. 
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Biological Activity

The specific activity was found to be approximately 117-136 pmole/min/µg. The enzymatic activity was confirmed by measuring the remaining peroxide after incubation of PRDX5 and peroxide for 20 min at room temperature. Specific activity is defined as the amount of hydroperoxide that 1ug of enzyme can reduce at 25°C for 1 minute.
