GLRX5 glutaredoxin 5

Also known as: GRX5; PRSA; SIDBA3; SPAHGC; FLB4739; PR01238; PRO1238; C14orf87


This gene encodes a mitochondrial protein, which is evolutionarily conserved. It is involved in the biogenesis of iron-sulfur clusters, which are required for normal iron homeostasis. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal recessive pyridoxine-refractory sideroblastic anemia. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
