GLRX5 [ENSP00000328570]

Glutaredoxin-related protein 5, mitochondrial; Monothiol glutaredoxin involved in the biogenesis of iron-sulfur clusters. Involved in protein lipoylation, acting in the pathway that provides an iron-sulfur cluster to lipoate synthase. Required for normal iron homeostasis. Required for normal regulation of hemoglobin synthesis by the iron-sulfur protein ACO1. May protect cells against apoptosis due to reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress (By similarity).
