Background: Manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD or SOD2) is a mitochondrial detoxification enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of superoxide to hydrogen peroxide (1,2). Hydrogen peroxide is then decomposed to water by catalase, glutathione peroxidase, or peroxiredoxins (2). MnSOD/SOD2 and other enzymes involved in antioxidant defense protect cells from reactive oxygen species (ROS) (2). Calorie restriction leads to SIRT3-mediated deacetylation of MnSOD/SOD2 and the subsequent increase of its antioxidant activity (3). MnSOD/SOD2 also plays an essential role in mediating the protective effect of mTOR inhibition to reduce epithelial stem cell senescence (4).

Background: Cytochrome c is a well conserved electron-transport protein and is part of the respiratory chain localized to mitochondrial intermembrane space (1). Upon apoptotic stimulation, cytochrome c released from mitochondria associates with procaspase-9 (47 kDa)/Apaf 1. This complex processes caspase-9 from inactive proenzyme to its active form (2). This event further triggers caspase-3 activation and eventually leads to apoptosis (3).

Background: Thioredoxin reductases are selenoproteins that are critical for maintaining cellular redox balance and eliminating reactive oxygen species (ROS) (1-4). There are three known mammalian thioredoxin reductases: TRXR1/TXNRD1 (cytosolic), TRXR2/TXNRD2 (mitochondrial), and TRXR3/TXNRD3 (testis-specific) (1). TRXR2 may function to protect against tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α)-mediated ROS generation (5). TRXR2 is critical for normal heart development and function (1,4). TRXR2 KO mice experience embryonic lethality, while mitochondrial dysfunction seen in heart-specific TRXR2 KO mice results in congestive heart failure (4). In humans, certain rare mutations in TRXR2 have been linked to dilated cardiomyopathy (1). A recent study in the EPIC-Heidelberg cohort shows that serum selenium levels, in concert with certain SNPs in TRXR2 and other selenoproteins, can influence prostate cancer risk (6).

Background: During their synthesis, secretory proteins translocate into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) where they are post-translationally modified and properly folded. To reach their native conformation, many secretory proteins require the formation of intra- or inter-molecular disulfide bonds (1). This process is called oxidative protein folding. Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) catalyzes the formation and isomerization of these disulfide bonds (2). Studies on mechanisms of oxidative folding suggest that molecular oxygen oxidizes the ER-protein Ero1, which in turn oxidizes PDI through disulfide exchange (3). This event is then followed by PDI-catalyzed disulfide bond formation in folding proteins (3).

Background: TRXR1 (thioredoxin reductase 1) is a selenocysteine-containing protein that is involved in redox homeostasis (1-6). Its canonical target is thioredoxin, another redox protein (1). Together, they are involved in many functions such as antioxidant regulation (3-6), cell proliferation (2,3,5), DNA replication (2,3), and transcription (3,5). TRXR1 is also capable of reducing a wide array of cellular proteins (1,3). Selenium deficiency, either by diet modification (2,6) or introduction of methylmercury (4), hinders proper expression and function of TRXR1. It is possible that this effect, which results in a higher oxidative state, is a result of the selenocysteine codon (UGA) being read as a STOP codon in the absence of adequate selenium (4). The functions of TRXR1 in cell proliferation and antioxidant defense make it a potential therapeutic target.

Background: Prdx1 belongs to a family of non-seleno peroxidases that function as H2O2 scavengers. All 6 Prdx isoforms share a conserved N-terminal cysteine (Cys51) that is oxidized by H2O2 to form cysteine-sulfenic acid (Cys51-SOH) and, in turn, reacts with Cys172-SH of another Prdx protein, forming a disulfide dimer and protecting it from degradation (1-3). Abnormally high levels of H2O2 cause Prdx1 to form an oligomeric chaperone that loses its peroxidase activity (4). Prdx family members have been reported to bind to JNK and c-Abl and regulate their kinase activity (5,6). Prdx1 was shown to bind to PTEN and regulate its phosphatase activity in conditions of mild or no cellular stress, hence preventing Akt-driven transformation by protecting PTEN from oxidation-induced inactivation (7).

Background: Thioredoxin is a small redox protein found in many eukaryotes and prokaryotes. A pair of cysteines within a highly conserved, active site sequence can be oxidized to form a disulfide bond that is then reduced by thioredoxin reductase (1). Multiple forms of thioredoxin have been identified, including cytosolic thioredoxin 1 (TRX1) and mitochondrial thioredoxin 2 (TRX2). Thioredoxin participates in many cellular processes including redox signaling, response to oxidative stress, and protein reduction (1). A potential role of thioredoxin in human disorders such as cancer, aging, and heart disease is currently under investigation (2). Thioredoxin can play a key role in cancer progression, because it acts as a negative regulator of the proapoptotic kinase ASK1 (3). Changes in thioredoxin expression have been associated with meningococcal septic shock and acute lung injury (4,5).

Background: Secretory proteins translocate into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) after their synthesis where they are post-translationally modified and properly folded. To reach their native conformation, many secretory proteins require the formation of intra- or inter-molecular disulfide bonds (1). This process is called oxidative protein folding. Several oxidoreductases of the protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) family essential for disulfide formation and isomerization are localized to the ER (2). Studies have found that the ER-residing protein endoplasmic oxidoreductin-1 (Ero1) provides the oxidizing potential to the ER in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (3). In vitro experiments demonstrated that Ero1 is oxidized by molecular oxygen in a FAD-dependent manner and the oxidized Ero1 in turn serves as an oxidant for PDI (4). Two human homologs of Ero1, Ero1-like (Ero1-Lα and β) have been identified (2,5). Ero1-Lα is an ER membrane-associated N-glycoprotein that promotes oxidative protein folding and has been shown to be expressed in several cell lines and tissues (2).

Background: At least 4 distinct polo-like kinases exist in mammalian cells: PLK1, PLK2, PLK3 and PLK4/SAK (1). Like the other PLK family members, PLK3 contains an amino-terminal catalytic domain and a conserved carboxy-terminal domain termed the Polo box (2). PLK3, also called proliferation-related kinase (Prk) (3), was originally described as a fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-inducible kinase (Fnk) and identified as an immediate-early response gene responsive to FGF-1 and other mitogens (4). PLK3 is a cytokine-inducible serine/threonine kinase whose protein expression is cell cycle regulated. Though its expression is found primarily in G1 phase of the cell cycle, PLK3 is detected in G0 and in late telophase prior to cytokinesis (5). Like the other PLK family members, PLK3 functions mainly as a regulator of the cell cycle. Specifically, PLK3 is required for entry into S phase and is a critical regulator of G1 events, as indicated by RNAi-induced PLK3-depleted cells (2). PLK3 is also involved in the regulation of DNA damage response via phosphorylation of p53 on Ser20 (6). PLK3 may act as a tumor suppressor as Plk3-deficient mice develop spontaneous tumors in various organs (7). Unlike PLK1, PLK3 expression is down regulated in cancers including lung (3), head and neck (8), and colon (9).

Background: Apolipoproteins are plasma lipoproteins that function as transporters of lipids and cholesterol in the circulatory system. Chylomicrons are a fundamental class of apolipoproteins containing very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL), low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and high-density lipoproteins (HDL) (1,2).
