Glyoxalase II promotes "in vitro" S-glutathionylation.
Ancona, Italy. In Free Radic Biol Med, 2014
S-glutathionylation involves the reversible formation of a mix disulphide-bridge between specific cysteine and a molecule of glutathione, the major non-protein antioxidant compound in the cell.
Glyoxalase diversity in parasitic protists.
Heidelberg, Germany. In Biochem Soc Trans, 2014
Our current knowledge of the isomerase glyoxalase I and the thioesterase glyoxalase II is based on a variety of prokaryotic and eukaryotic (model) systems with an emphasis on human glyoxalases.
The glyoxalase pathway in protozoan parasites.
Lisbon, Portugal. In Int J Med Microbiol, 2012
This pathway includes two enzymes, glyoxalase I and glyoxalase II, which convert methylglyoxal to d-lactate by using glutathione as a catalytic cofactor.
