At4g35000: APX3 (ASCORBATE PEROXIDASE 3)

Encodes a microsomal ascorbate peroxidase APX3. Ascorbate peroxidases are enzymes that scavenge hydrogen peroxide in plant cells. Eight types of APX have been described for Arabidopsis: three cytosolic (APX1, APX2, APX6), two chloroplastic types (stromal sAPX, thylakoid tAPX), and three microsomal (APX3, APX4, APX5) isoforms. The APX3 protein interacts with AKR2 (ankyrin-containing protein that interacts with AFT1) and AFT1, a 14-3-3 protein.
