name: peroxiredoxin activity
def: "Catalysis of the reaction: 2 R'-SH + ROOH = R'-S-S-R' + H2O + ROH." [EC:22.214.171.124]
comment: Includes redox chemistry as part of the catalytic reaction (2 R'-SH = R'-S-S-R'), where R' refers to peroxiredoxin itself). Not to be confused with GO:0004601 (peroxidase activity, EC:126.96.36.199), which has a different reaction mechanism.
