    Preposition OF

    In the sentence: "In light of this context, the aim of the present work was to evaluate the nematophagous and nematicidal activities of Pycnoporus sanguineus PYC 02 AND OF its proteases", should I keep the preposition "OF" in the text or should I cut it leaving the part like this: "AND ITS PROTEASES"?

    Re: Preposition OF

    You should keep 'of' for the sake of clarity.

    Did you write this sentence, Fifi Blu? If not, please tell us who did.

    Re: Preposition OF

    Yes, Rover KE, I wrote it myself. It was for a scientific article of a friend, she asked me to translate it from Portuguese to English. I had to find the best words to fit her style. Please feel free to make any other comments, they're very welcome.
