Gene: GPX6 (glutathione peroxidase 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GPX6
Name: glutathione peroxidase 6
Description: Predicted to have glutathione peroxidase activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular oxidant detoxification; oxidation-reduction process; and response to oxidative stress. Predicted to localize to the extracellular region. Biomarker of Huntington's disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: dJ1186N24; dJ1186N24.1; glutathione peroxidase 6 (olfactory); glutathione peroxidase pseudogene 3; GPx-6; GPX5p; GPXP3; GSHPx-6
