Methionine sulfoxide reductases of Aspergillus nidulans

Methionine sulfoxide reductases (Msr) are repair proteins, which provide an important part of the cellular antioxidant defense. Methionine oxidation results in a diasteromeric mixture of methionine-S-sulfoxide (Met-S-O) and methionine-R-sulfoxide (Met-R-O), requiring MsrA enzymes to reduce Met-S-O and...
