Protein Information
Synonyms GRIM12, KDRF
Function Isoform 1 may possess glutaredoxin activity as well as thioredoxin reductase activity and induces actin and tubulin polymerization, leading to formation of cell membrane protrusions. Isoform 4 enhances the transcriptional activity of estrogen receptors alpha and beta while isoform 5 enhances the transcriptional activity of the beta receptor only. Isoform 5 also mediates cell death induced by a combination of interferon-beta and retinoic acid.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Isoform 5: Cytoplasm.
Tissue Location Isoform 1 is expressed predominantly in Leydig cells (at protein level). Also expressed in ovary, spleen, heart, liver, kidney and pancreas and in a number of cancer cell lines Isoform 4 is widely expressed with highest levels in kidney, testis, uterus, ovary, prostate, placenta and fetal liver

This gene encodes a member of the family of pyridinenucleotide oxidoreductases. This protein reduces thioredoxins aswell as other substrates, and plays a role in selenium metabolismand protection against oxidative stress. The functional enzyme isthought to be a homodimer which uses FAD as a cofactor. Eachsubunit contains a selenocysteine (Sec) residue which is requiredfor catalytic activity. The selenocysteine is encoded by the UGAcodon that normally signals translation termination. The 3' UTR ofselenocysteine-containing genes have a common stem-loop structure,the sec insertion sequence (SECIS), that is necessary for therecognition of UGA as a Sec codon rather than as a stop signal.Alternative splicing results in several transcript variantsencoding the same or different isoforms.
