Depth and richness seems to be influenced by the extent of reduction and subsequent reoxidation.
m] indicates that the initial rate of reduction of the plastoquinone (Qa) was higher than the rate of plastoquinone reoxidation by b (Qb) and the activity of photosystem I (PSI) when plants were exposed to higher concentrations of NaCl.
The rate of bubbling has to be properly controlled, because an excessive flow can cause such levels of turbulence that facilitates the emulsification of the slag coverage and exposure of the metal to the air, thus stimulating the reoxidation of the metal bath, and the absorption of nitrogen.
To pass through the degradasome, CTA1 would have to undergo unfolding and refolding, a process possibly involving reduction by protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) followed by reoxidation by Ero1 (37).
The concentration of reduced sulfur was only significantly stimulated (58%) by the mussel farm during the second summer season, which was characterized by total oxygen depletion in the bottom water and linked to the unavailable oxygen for reoxidation.
With recirculation systems, water is continually cycled back to the ozone system for reoxidation at a predetermined level, and returned to the washer for laundry sanitation.
However, under oxygen-limiting microaerophilic and anaerobic conditions, severe restrictions may be imposed on the reoxidation potential, leading to redox imbalance that results in toxic accumulations of the reducing equivalents.
8), who found increased PDHc activity in the presence of oxamate, an LD inhibitor that prevents LD-induced NADH reoxidation, we could not confirm a significant effect of this compound in our assay (Table 1 and Fig.
Recently, it has been shown that the thioredoxin-reduced (disarmed) form of [beta]-lactoglobulin can be stabilized by either reoxidation or derivatization with a physiologic disulfide compound (cystamine or oxidized glutathione) (Morigasaki et al.
Initial results demonstrate that alkylation eliminates binding within 5%, and a reduction followed by reoxidation control group can yield a recovery of binding above 90%.
