ENZYME entry: EC 1.8.5.7

Accepted Name
Glutathionyl-hydroquinone reductase.
Reaction catalysed
Glutathione + 2-(glutathione-S-yl)-hydroquinone <=> glutathione disulfide + hydroquinone
Comment(s)
  • This type of enzymes, which are found in bacteria, halobacteria, fungi, and plants, catalyze the glutathione-dependent reduction of glutathionyl-hydroquinones.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Sphingobium chlorophenolicum can act on halogenated substrates such as 2,6-dichloro-3-(glutathione-S-yl)- hydroquinone and 2,3,5-trichloro-6-(glutathione-S-yl)-hydroquinone.
  • Substrates for these enzymes are often formed spontaneously by interaction of benzoquinones with glutathione.
