arsenate reductase (glutaredoxin) activity

id: GO:0008794
name: arsenate reductase (glutaredoxin) activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Catalysis of the reaction: arsenate + reduced glutaredoxin = arsenite + oxidized glutaredoxin. Glutaredoxin functions as the electron donor for arsenate reduction. The electron flow therefore is ( NADPH -> glutathione reductase (EC: -> ) glutathione -> glutaredoxin -> arsenate reductase, i.e. glutathione is reduced by glutathione reductase and glutaredoxin is reduced by glutathione.
