Thioredoxins are a group of small redox active proteins possessing a conserved active site sequence. TrxL (Thioredoxin like protein 1) has 2 distinct domains: an N terminal domain, which is 43% identical to human TXN, and a C terminal domain, which shows no homology to other proteins in the sequence databases. The active site sequence, located within the N terminal domain, is that of a thioredoxin like protein; compared to the active site sequence of TXN, it has a single amino acid substitution. Unlike other thioredoxin like proteins, TrxL does not serve as a substrate for thioredoxin reductase in an insulin assay.
