    ..Thus, CePrx2 may protect specifically the two types of neurons from oxidative damage or, more likely, plays a critical role in peroxide signaling in this nematode. ..

    ..Together the data reveal that in metazoans Prx act through multiple biochemical activities, and have tissue-specific functions in stress resistance and longevity. ..

    ..These results suggest that the above genes may be related to cellular senescence process in determining the longevity in C. elegans and that gene inactivation renders animals susceptible to oxidative stress. ..

    ..Together, these data suggest that loss of peroxiredoxin function may increase stress resistance by reducing insulin secretion, but that further changes in insulin ..

    ..We show that this beneficial signal of the mitohormetic pathway is propagated by the peroxiredoxin PRDX-2...
