Structural basis for catalytic activity and enzyme polymerization of phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase-4 (GPx4). Biochemistry. 2007;46:9041-9 pubmed..Site-directed mutagenesis suggested involvement of the catalytic C46 and surface exposed C10 and C66 in polymer formation. In GPx4 crystals, these residues contact adjacent protein monomers. ..
