Also known as Alkyl hydroperoxide reductase AhpD (Alkylhydroperoxidase AhpD). Antioxidant protein with alkyl hydroperoxidase activity. Required for the reduction of the AhpC active site cysteine residues and for the regeneration of the AhpC enzyme activity.
Also known as Alkyl hydroperoxide reductase subunit C (Alkyl hydroperoxide reductase protein C22) (General stress protein 22) (Peroxiredoxin) (Thioredoxin peroxidase). Directly reduces organic hydroperoxides in its reduced dithiol form.
Serves to protect the cell against DNA damage by alkyl hydroperoxides. It can use either NADH or NADPH as electron donor for direct reduction of redox dyes or of alkyl hydroperoxides when combined with the AhpC protein ().
