Abstract

Background: MitoNEET is a target of the type II diabetes drug pioglitazone and contains a [2Fe-2S] cluster. Results: The mitoNEET [2Fe-2S] cluster can be reduced by biological thiols and reversibly oxidized by hydrogen peroxide. Conclusion: The redox state of mitoNEET [2Fe-2S] clusters can be regulated by thiols and oxidative signals. Significance: MitoNEET may act as a redox sensor to modulate mitochondrial functions. © 2014 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc..
