Abstract
Peroxidase genes (Prdx) encode a family of antioxidant proteins, which can protect cells from oxidative damage by reducing various cellular peroxides. This study investigated the spatiotemporal expression patterns of gene members in this family during the early development of Xenopus tropicalis. Real-time quantitative PCR showed that all members of this gene family have a distinct temporal expression pattern during the early development of X. tropicalis embryos. Additionally, whole mount in situ hybridization revealed that individual prdx genes display differential expression patterns, with overlapping expression in lymphatic vessels, pronephros, proximal tubule, and branchial arches. This study provides a basis for further study of the function of the prdx gene family.
