Calredoxin, a novel protein for promoting efficient photosynthesis

A group of researchers reports on the structure and function of a novel protein named Calredoxin. Calredoxin binds calcium and catalyzes in dependence of its binding, redox reactions, particularly driving the detoxification of harmful oxygen species. The researchers are exploring how this protein functions at the crossroad of calcium- and redox-dependent reactions to promote efficient oxygenic photosynthesis.
