Peroxiredoxin 5 is the last discovered mammalian member of an ubiquitous family of peroxidases widely distributed among prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Mammalian peroxiredoxin 5 has been recently classified as an atypical 2-Cys peroxiredoxin due to the presence of a conserved peroxidatic N-terminal cysteine (Cys47) and an unconserved resolving C-terminal cysteine residue (Cys151) forming an intramolecular disulfide intermediate in the oxidized enzyme. We have recently reported the crystal structure of human peroxiredoxin 5 in its reduced form. Here, a new crystal form of human peroxiredoxin 5 i…
