Peroxiredoxin-2, also known as Natural killer cell-enhancing factor B, NKEF-B, Thiol-specific antioxidant protein, Thioredoxin peroxidase 1, Thioredoxin-dependent peroxide reductase 1, PRDX2 and NKEFB, is a cytoplasm protein which belongs to the ahpC / TSA family. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 contains one thioredoxin domain. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 is involved in redox regulation of the cell. It reduces peroxides with reducing equivalents provided through the thioredoxin system. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 is not able to receive electrons from glutaredoxin. It may play an important role in eliminating peroxides generated during metabolism. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 might participate in the signaling cascades of growth factors and tumor necrosis factor-alpha by regulating the intracellular concentrations of H2O2.
The Peroxiredoxins / Prx are a family of peroxidases that can reduce H2O2 using an electron from thioredoxin (Trx) or other substances. The mammalian Peroxiredoxins / Prx family is divided into six groups ( PRDX1，PRDX2, PRDX3, PRDX4, PRDX5, PRDX6 ) on the basis of homology of amino acid sequences. They are located in the cytosol and play a role in the cell signaling system. All six mammalian peroxiredoxins are expressed in the lung. Peroxiredoxins / Prx is overexpressed in breast cancer tissues to a great extent suggesting that Peroxiredoxins / Prx has a proliferative effect and may be related to cancer development or progression.
