Txnip: redoxisome, as a redox switch for the pathogenesis of diseases.

During the past few decades, it has been widely recognized that Reduction-Oxidation (redox) responses occurring at the intra- and extra-cellular level...

Redox dynamics of manganese as a mitochondrial life-death switch.
Sten Orrenius, M.D., Ph.D., pioneered many areas of cellular and molecular toxicology and made seminal contributions to our knowledge of oxidative stress and glutathione (GSH) metabolism, organellar functions and Ca+2-dependent mechanisms of cell dea

Thioredoxin Interacting Protein (TXNIP) and Pathogenesis of Diabetic Retinopathy.
Chronic hyperglycemia (HG)-associated reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) stress and low grade inflammation are considered to play critical roles in the development of diabetic retinopathy (DR). Excess glucose metabolic flux through the aldose

Identification of Redox and Glucose-Dependent Txnip Protein Interactions.
Thioredoxin-interacting protein (Txnip) acts as a negative regulator of thioredoxin function and is a critical modulator of several diseases including, but not limited to, diabetes, ischemia-reperfusion cardiac injury, and carcinogenesis. Therefore,

The [4Fe4S] cluster of human DNA primase functions as a redox switch using DNA charge transport.
DNA charge transport chemistry offers a means of long-range, rapid redox signaling. We demonstrate that the [4Fe4S] cluster in human DNA primase can make use of this chemistry to coordinate the first steps of DNA synthesis. Using DNA electrochemistry

Glia in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases.
Exclusively neuron-centric approaches to neuropathological mechanisms have not resulted in major new breakthroughs in the prevention and therapy of neurodegenerative diseases. In the present paper, we review the role of glia in neurodegeneration in a

OxyR2 Functions as a Three-state Redox Switch to Tightly Regulate Production of Prx2, a Peroxiredoxin of Vibrio vulnificus.
The bacterial transcriptional regulator OxyR is known to function as a two-state redox switch. OxyR senses cellular levels of H2O2 via a "sensing cysteine" that switches from the reduced to a disulfide state upon H2O2 exposure, inducing the expressio

Redox-switch regulatory mechanism of thiolase from Clostridium acetobutylicum.
Thiolase is the first enzyme catalysing the condensation of two acetyl-coenzyme A (CoA) molecules to form acetoacetyl-CoA in a dedicated pathway towards the biosynthesis of n-butanol, an important solvent and biofuel. Here we elucidate the crystal st
