How does thioredoxin reductase influence the production of deoxyribonucleotides?
Thioredoxin reductase helps in ribonucleic acid reduction to form DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid).
Thioredoxin reductase catalyzes the reduction of thioredoxin by NADPH (nicotinamide dinucleotide phosphate hydrogen). The ribonucleotide reductase is an enzyme that catalyses the reduction of ribonucleotides to form deoxyribonucleotides. These deoxyribonucleotides polymerize to form DNA. This reduction reaction requires electrons in the form of NADPH. The reduced form of thioredoxin provides NADPH to facilitate the enzymatic activity of enzyme ribonucleotide reductase and ultimately the reduction reaction.
