Aspergillus fumigatus is a saprophyte filamentous fungal ubiquitous in the environment and responsible for respiratory human diseases like invasive aspergillosis (AIP), specifically in immunocompromised individuals accounting for high mortality rates. One of the earliest events in the host defense response against pathogen attack is the production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) includ...
Peroxiredoxins (Prxs) are Cys-based thiol-dependent peroxidases that contain one (1-Cys Prx) or two (2-Cys Prx) Cys residues involved in catalysis. To date, all characterized Prxs display the universal motif PxxxT/SxxC and can reduce hydroperoxides with extraordinary rates, ranging from 106 to 108 M-1 s-1. In spite of being a heterogeneous family, all Prxs present the peroxidase activit...
