EC 1.20.4.3

Accepted name: mycoredoxin

Reaction: arseno-mycothiol + mycoredoxin = arsenite + mycothiol-mycoredoxin disulfide

Other name(s): Mrx1; MrxI

Systematic name: arseno-mycothiol:mycoredoxin oxidoreductase

Comments: Reduction of arsenate is part of a defense mechanism of the cell against toxic arsenate. The substrate arseno-mycothiol is formed by EC 2.8.4.2 (arsenate:mycothiol transferase). A second mycothiol recycles mycoredoxin and forms mycothione.
