Proteomic analysis of protein expression affected by peroxiredoxin V knock-down in hypoxic kidney

J Proteome Res. 2010 Aug 6;9(8):4003-15. doi: 10.1021/pr100190b.


Peroxiredoxin V, an atypical thioredoxin peroxidase, is widely expressed in mammalian tissues. In addition, Prdx V is localized in mitochondria, peroxisome, cytosol, and the nucleus. Prdx V has been reported to protect a wide range of cellular environments as an antioxidant enzyme, and its dysfunctions may be implicated in several diseases, such as cancer, inflammation, and neurodegenerative disease. Identification and relative quantification of proteins affected by Prdx V may help identify novel signaling mechanisms that are important for oxidative stress response. However, the role of Prdx V in the modulation of hypoxia-related cellular response is not studied yet. To examine the function of endogenous Prdx V in hypoxic condition in vivo, we generated a transgenic mouse model with Prdx V siRNA expression controlled by U6 promoter. Of many tissues, the knockdown of Prdx V expression was displayed in the kidney, lung, and liver but not the spleen and skin. We conducted on the basis of nano-UPLC-MS(E) proteomic study to identify the Prdx V-affected protein networks in hypoxic kidneys. In this study, we identified protein networks associated with oxidative stress, fatty acid metabolism, and mitochondrial dysfunction. Our results indicated that Prdx V affected to regulation of kidney homeostasis under hypoxia stress.
