What is Thioredoxin-1?

Thioredoxin-1 (Trx1) is an oxidoreductase protein and thus may act as an anti-oxidant by facilitating the reduction of cysteine residues of other proteins. Besides keeping the intracellular milieu in a reduced state and being involved in the defence against oxidative stress, thioredoxin-1 specifically regulates several transcription factors and receptors. Increased plasma levels of thioredoxin-1 has been associated with several psychiatric disorders.
