Accepted name: glutathione peroxidase
2 glutathione + H O 2 = glutathione disulfide + 2 2 H O 2
Other name(s): GSH peroxidase; selenium-glutathione peroxidase; reduced glutathione peroxidase
Systematic name: glutathione:hydrogen-peroxide oxidoreductase
Comments: A protein containing a selenocysteine residue. Steroid and lipid hydroperoxides, but not the product of reaction of
EC 220.127.116.11 lipoxygenase on phospholipids, can act as acceptor, but more slowly than H O 2 ( 2 cf. EC 18.104.22.168 phospholipid-hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase).
