Note(s): Background: Methionine Sulfoxide Reductase A (MsrA), an enzyme in the Msr gene family, is important in thecellular anti-oxidative stress defense mechanism. It acts by reducing the oxidized methionine sulfoxide in proteinsback to sulfide and by reducing the cellular level of reactive oxygen species. MsrA, the only enzyme in the Msr gene family that can reduce the S-form epimers of methionine sulfoxide, has been located in different cellular compartments including mitochondria, cytosol and nuclei of various cell lines.
