Glutathione peroxidase 4

phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase, PHGPx, GPX4, glutathione peroxidase 4
Glutathione peroxidase catalyzes the reduction of hydrogen peroxide, organic hydroperoxide, and lipid peroxides by reduced glutathione and functions in the protection of cells against oxidative damage. Plasma glutathione peroxidase has been shown to be a selenium-containing enzyme and the UGA codon is translated into a selenocysteine. Through alternative splicing and transcription initiation, proteins are produced that localize to the nucleus, mitochondrion, and cytoplasm. The exact cleavage sites of the mitochondrial and nuclear transit peptides need to be experimentally verified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Genetic polymorphisms that affect selenium status and response to selenium supplementation in United Kingdom pregnant women.
Rayman et al., Shenyang, China. In Am J Clin Nutr, Jan 2016

Ferroptosis: Death by Lipid Peroxidation.
Stockwell et al., New York City, United States. In Trends Cell Biol, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: Ferroptosis is a regulated form of cell death driven by loss of activity of the lipid repair enzyme glutathione peroxidase 4 (GPX4) and subsequent accumulation of lipid-based reactive oxygen species (ROS), particularly lipid hydroperoxides.
Influence of SkQ1 on Expression of Nrf2 Gene, ARE-Controlled Genes of Antioxidant Enzymes and Their Activity in Rat Blood Leukocytes under Oxidative Stress.
Makarenko et al., Rostov-na-Donu, Russia. In Biochemistry (mosc), Dec 2015
The changes in gene expression profiles under hyperoxia were accompanied by disbalance of activity of antioxidant enzymes in the leukocytes, namely activation of superoxide dismutase and inhibition of catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and glutathione-S-transferase. Pretreatment of rats with SkQ1 (50 nmol/kg for five days) significantly increased mRNA levels of transcription factor Nrf2 and Nrf2-induced genes encoding antioxidant enzymes SOD2 and GPx4 and normalized the transcriptional activity of the SOD1 and CAT genes in the leukocytes in hyperoxia-induced oxidative stress.

Califano et al., New York City, United States. In Cell, Aug 2015
Finally, unknown-MoA compound analysis revealed altretamine, an anticancer drug, as an inhibitor of glutathione peroxidase 4 lipid repair activity, which was experimentally confirmed, thus revealing unexpected similarity to the activity of sulfasalazine.
Inactivation of the ferroptosis regulator Gpx4 triggers acute renal failure in mice.
