The NWLSS™ Peroxiredoxin 1 (Prx1) ELISA kit is to be used for quantitative determination of human Prx1 in human serum, plasma, cell lysate and other biological samples. The assay will recognize both native and recombinant human Prx1
Peroxiredoxins are a family of antioxidant proteins that share a common reactive Cys residue in the N-terminal region, and are capable of serving as a peroxidase, involving thioredoxin and/or glutathione as the electron donor. Peroxiredixin 1 is the isoform found in the cytosol of cells. Organisms living under aerobic conditions have developed various anti-oxidative mechanisms to protect them from damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Peroxiredoxin (Prx) is a growing anti-oxidative protein family that has been identified six members in mammals. They share a common reactive Cys residue in the N-terminal region, and are capable of serving as a peroxidase and involve thioredoxin and/or glutathione as the electron donor. Prx1 to Prx4 have an additional Cys residue in the conserved C-terminal region, and are cross members as judged by the amino acid sequence similarity. Prx5 also contains an additional Cys in its C-terminal region that is less conserved. On the other hand, Prx6 has only one unique Cys. These Prx family members are distributed in subcellular localization, Prx1, 2, and 6 in cytosol, Prx3 in mitochondria, Prx4 in ER and secretion, Prx5 showing complicated distribution including peroxisome, mitochondria and cytosol, all of which are potential sites of ROS production. In addition to their role as a peroxidase, however, a body of evidence has accumulated to suggest that individual members also serve divergent functions, which are associated with various biological processes such as the detoxification of oxidants, cell proliferation, differentiation and gene expression. It would be expected that these functions might not necessarily depend on peroxidase activity and, therefore, it seems likely that the divergence is due to unique molecular characteristics intrinsic to each member.
