Caption: Through the company's depolymerization
technology, waste PET is completely broken down into its monomers, dimethyl terephthalate (left) and monoethylene glycol (MEG), without adding heat or pressure.
Actin-depolymerizing factor and cofilin-1 play overlapping roles in promoting rapid F-actin depolymerization
in mammalian nonmuscle cells.
of chitosan by enzymes from the digestive tract of sea cucumber Stichopus japonicus," African Journal of Biotechnology, vol.
Based on the data, the apple chips exhibited higher crispness and better microstructure when there was less amount of WEP fraction, which might be partially attributed to depolymerization
and leaching of the pectic polysaccharides.
After cellular spreading, myosin II increases tension on the actin network while depolymerization
of F-actin decreases the tension, and this maintains the tension in equilibrium.
Sub- and supercritical water, with its unique properties such as nontoxicity, low cost, and environmental friendliness, is regarded as a promising solvent for depolymerization
Influence of ultraviolet-irradiated oxygen on depolymerization
Invading bacterial or fungal pathogens produce alkaloids, such as mold alkaloid cytochalasin D, Streptomyces staurosporeus alkaloid staurosporine, or Clostridium difficile binary toxin (CDT), which cause depolymerization
of the actin cytoskeleton in host cells via different mechanisms [7-9].
In the recent years, extraction and depolymerization
with ionic liquids (ILs) for the isolation or degradation of lignins were considered to be promising processes [18, 19].

dynamics is associated with autosomal dominant developmental malformations, deafness, and dystonia," American Journal of Human Genetics, vol.
The assays were conducted in sodium acetate buffer (0.1 M, pH 5.0) containing 1% starch, and depolymerization
of starch was quantified by the iodometric method described by Fuwa  and Pongsawadi and Yagisawa .
According to the authors, fruit softening is related to pectin depolymerization
of and hemicelluloses and PG plays an important role in the solubilization and not in pectin depolymerization
; therefore, only the action of the PG may not be sufficient to induce fruit softening.
