GPX2 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB6817) staining (1 ug/mL) of human prostate lysate (RIPA buffer, 30 ug total protein per lane). Primary incubated for 1 hour. Detected by western blot using chemiluminescence.
This gene is a member of the glutathione peroxidase family and encodes a selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase that is one of two isoenzymes responsible for the majority of the glutathione-dependent hydrogen peroxide-reducing activity in the epithelium of the gastrointestinal tract. Studies in knockout mice indicate that mRNA expression levels respond to luminal microflora, suggesting a role of the ileal glutathione peroxidases in preventing inflammation in the GI tract.
