Abstract

Thioredoxin reductase and thioredoxin are primarily involved in catabolic metabolism as important electron carriers in anaerobic, amino-acid-degrading bacteria. A general and fast procedure was developed for the purification of thioredoxin reductase and thioredoxin from and based upon their properties: the binding to 2′,5′-AMP-Sepharose by thioredoxin reductase and the inability of thioredoxins to bind to a DEAE-Sephacel column. The consensus sequence at the active site of thioredoxins (-WCGPC-) was found to be modified in all of these anaerobes: Trp-31 ( nomenclature) was replaced by Gly or Ser, Gly-33 by Val or Glu. None of these thioredoxins reacted with thioredoxin reductase of or vice versa, but they did interact with the thioredoxin reductases obtained from the other anaerobes studied. Based upon their distinguishing features it is suggested that these thioredoxins might form an evolutionarily separate group.
