Arsenate Reductases MeSH Descriptor Data 2022


MeSH Heading
Arsenate Reductases
Tree Number(s)
D08.811.682.113
Unique ID
D053502
RDF Unique Identifier
http://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D053502
Scope Note
Oxidoreductases that specifically reduce arsenate ion to arsenite ion. Reduction of arsenate is a critical step for its biotransformation into a form that can be transported by ARSENITE TRANSPORTING ATPASES or complexed by specific sulfhydryl-containing proteins for the purpose of detoxification (METABOLIC DETOXIFICATION, DRUG). Arsenate reductases require reducing equivalents such as GLUTAREDOXIN or AZURIN.
