Protein S-mycothiolation functions as redox-switch and thiol protection mechanism in Corynebacterium glutamicum under hypochlorite stress Vrije Universiteit Brussel
AIMS: Protein S-bacillithiolation was recently discovered as important thiol protection and redox-switch mechanism in response to hypochlorite stress in Firmicutes bacteria. Here we used transcriptomics to analyze the NaOCl stress response in the mycothiol (MSH)-producing Corynebacterium glutamicum. We further applied thiol-redox proteomics and mass spectrometry (MS) to identify protein S-mycothiolation.
RESULTS: Transcriptomics ...

Low-molecular-weight thiols in thiol-disulfide exchange Vrije Universiteit Brussel
SIGNIFICANCE: Oxidative stress is widely invoked in inflammation, aging, and complex diseases. To avoid unwanted oxidations, the redox environment of cellular compartments needs to be tightly controlled. The complementary action of oxidoreductases and of high concentrations of low-molecular-weight (LMW) nonprotein thiols plays an essential role in maintaining the redox potential of the cell in balance.
RECENT ADVANCES: While LMW thiols ...
