CommentMembers of this protein family, including YtxJ from Bacillus subtilis, occur in species that encode proteins for synthesizing bacillithiol. The protein is described as thioredoxin-like, while another bacillithiol-associated protein, YpdA (TIGR04018), is described as thioredoxin reductase-like.
