Peroxiredoxin (Prx) belongs to a peroxidase family of antioxidant enzymes distributed ubiquitously in aerobic organisms such as yeast, fungi, parasites, mammals and humans. It plays an important role in the defense of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) produced by aerobic organisms. This article introduces the classification, mechanism of Prx and the progress of research on Prx in invertebrates. Source

A series of S(-)-2-(4-chlorophenyl)-N-(5,7-disubstituted-2H-[1,2,4]-thiadiazolo[2,3-a]pyrimidin-2-ylidene)-3-methylbutanamide derivatives were designed and synthesized. The structures of all the newly synthesized compounds had been identified by elemental analysis, 1H NMR, MS and optical rotation. Their herbicidal activities were evaluated against a variety of weeds. The preliminary results showed that most of the target compounds had moderate inhibitory activities and selectivities against root and stalk of monocotyledon and dicotyledon plants. More importantly, the chiral target compounds showed improved herbicidal activities to some extent over their racemic counterparts against a variety of tested weeds, which might be contributed by the introduction of chiral active unit. The present work provided a novel class of chirality-based thiadiazolopyrimidine derivatives with potent herbicidal activities for further optimization. © 2010 . Source

This study analyzes the strength, weakness, opportunity and threat (SWOT) of laboratory certification and accreditation on detection of parasitic diseases by SWOT analysis comprehensively, and it puts forward some development strategies specifically, in order to provide some indicative references for the further development.

The distribution and public health significance of Cryptosporidium species/genotypes in pigs differ among geographic areas and studies. To characterize the prevalence of cryptosporidiosis in pigs in Henan, China, a total of 1,350 fecal samples from 14 farms in ten prefectures in Henan Province were examined. The overall prevalence of Cryptosporidium was 8.2% (111/1,350), with the highest infection rate (79/383 or 20.6%) in 1-2-month-old piglets and the lowest infection rates in 3-6-month-old pigs. Cryptosporidium-positive samples from 108 animals were analyzed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the small subunit rRNA gene, and 35 were further analyzed by DNA sequencing of the PCR products. Two Cryptosporidium species/genotype were identified, including Cryptosporidium suis (94/108) and the Cryptosporidium pig genotype II (14/108). C. suis infection was more common in younger piglets whereas the pig genotype II was relatively common in older pigs. These findings suggest that pigs are not a major source of zoonotic Cryptosporidium in the study area. © 2010 Springer-Verlag. Source
