Table 1. Classification of Prxs from different kingdoms of life. Prxs are classified according to their enzymatic mechanism (typical 2-Cys, atypical 2-Cys or 1-Cys) and sequence homology (geometric forms in the table but see also phylogenetic tree of Fig. 2). Circles (PrxI/PRDX1 subfamily), triangles (PrxV/PRDX5 subfamily), inversed triangles (BCP-PrxQ subfamily), squares (PrxVI/PRDX6 subfamily) and hexagons (Tpx subfamily) represent the different clusters based on sequence homology. The phylogenetic tree is shape-coded accordingly. E. coli: Escherichia coli; A. pernix: Aeropyrum pernix; S. cerevisiae: Saccharomyces cerevisiae; P. falciparum: Plasmodium falciparum; A. thaliana: Arabidopsis thaliana; D. melanogaster: Drosophila melanogaster; H. sapiens: Homo sapiens
