PRDX1(Peroxiredoxin 1), also called PRX1, PAGA or NKEFA, is a thiol reductase that plays critical
roles in oxidative and thermal stress defense mechanisms through its abilities to metabolize H2O2 and
act as a molecular chaperone, respectively. This gene encodes a member of the peroxiredoxin family of
antioxidant enzymes, which reduce hydrogen peroxide and alkyl hydroperoxides. The PRDX1 gene is
mapped on 1p34.1. Prdx1 was expressed in differentiating motor neuron cells in developing embryonic
chicken and mouse spinal cords. mmunoprecipitation analysis showed that GDE2 interacted directly
with PRDX1 in embryonic chicken spinal cord extracts and in transfected HEK293T cells. This protein
may have a proliferative effect and play a role in cancer development or progression. In differentiating
spinal cord, Prdx1 was required to activate Gde2 by reducing an intramolecular cystine bridge between
the Gde2 N- and C-terminal domains. An intramolecular disulfide bond between the GDE2 N- and
C-terminal domains inhibits GDE2 function, and that reduction of this cystine by PRDX1 activates GDE2
for the induction of motor neuron differentiation.
