Secondly, the redox sensitive kinases which contain cysteine motifs i.e., thioredoxin, nuclear signaling factors such as Ref-1 and transcription factors i.e., AP-1, NF-KB, Nfr-1, Egr-1, all are plying critical role for DNA synthesis, and cell growth.
Inhibition of certain thiol-containing enzymes (Alcohol dehydrogenase, thioredoxin reductase, RNA polymerase) in the microorganisms by the rapid reaction of thiosulfinates with thiol groups is supposed to be the main mechanism involved in the antibiotic effect.
Thioredoxin (Trx), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) and thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) comprise a thioredoxin system which exists in nearly all living cells (Arner and Holmgren 2006).

The selenium-containing enzyme thioredoxin reductase 1 (TrxR1) can be used to support the growth of various cells and to protect them from harmful forms of oxygen radicals, known as oxidative stress.
Early IFN-[alpha] responses in BMM were also associated with the downregulation of genes associated with the antioxidant response (superoxide dismutase 2 (SOD2), glutamate-cysteine ligase, catalytic subunit (GCLC), NAD kinase (NADK), and thioredoxin reductase 1 and 3 (TXNRD1, TXNRD3)) and the upregulation of thioredoxin interacting protein (TXNIP), which inhibits the antioxidant activity of thioredoxin [48, 49].
