The Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome encodes three proteins that Analysis of point mutants derived from wild-type Gto2 indicates display similarities with human GSTOs (Omega class glutathione that, among the three cysteine residues of the molecule, only the S-transferases) hGSTO1-1 and hGSTO2-2. The three yeast pro- residue at position 46 is required for the glutaredoxin activity. teins have been named Gto1, Gto2 and Gto3, and their purified This indicates that the thiol transferase acts through a mono- recombinant forms are active as thiol transferases (glutaredoxins) thiol mechanism. Replacing the active site of the yeast monothiol against HED (β-hydroxyethyl disulphide), as dehydroascorbate glutaredoxin Grx5 with the proposed Gto2 active site containing reductases and as dimethylarsinic acid reductases, while they are Cys46 allows Grx5 to retain some activity against HED. Therefore not active against the standard GST substrate CDNB (1-chloro- the residues adjacent to the respective active cysteine residues in 2,4-dinitrobenzene). Their glutaredoxin activity is also detectable Gto2 and Grx5 are important determinants for the thiol transferase in yeast cell extracts. The enzyme activity characteristics of the activity against small disulphide-containing molecules. Gto proteins contrast with those of another yeast GST, Gtt1. The latter is active against CDNB and also displays glutathione peroxidase activity against organic hydroperoxides such as cumene hydroperoxide, but is not active as a thiol transferase.

Mitochondrial Hsp60, resistance to oxidative stress, and the labile iron pool are closely connected in Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cabiscol Català, Elisa; Bellí i Martínez, Gemma; Tamarit Sumalla, Jordi; Echave Lozano, Pedro; Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique; Ros Salvador, Joaquim (The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2002)In the present study, we have analyzed the role of the molecular chaperone Hsp60 in protection of Saccharo- myces cerevisiae against oxidative damage. We con- structed mutant strains in which the levels of Hsp60 protein, ...
Altered intracellular calcium homeostasis and endoplasmic reticulum redox state in Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells lacking Grx6 glutaredoxin Puigpinós Roig, Judit; Casas Herranz, Celia; Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique (American Society for Cell Biology, 2015)Glutaredoxin 6 (Grx6) of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an integral thiol oxidoreductase protein of the endoplasmic reticulum/Golgi vesicles. Its absence alters the redox equilibrium of the reticulum lumen toward a more ...
