The soil pores in the upper soil layers were filled with water during rainfall, and soil diffusibility dramatically decreased when consecutive rain events occurred, resulting in a decrease in soil diffusivity and an increase in C[O.sub.2] accumulation in soil (Tang et al.
Some disadvantages experienced in usual tracer experiments using labeled biomolecules with limited diffusibility are overcome by our [D.sub.2]O-labeling method.
4A and B), but the effect of PENS was significant and dose-dependent, achieving a 30% reduction, which indicated that the removed material might have deleterious effects on either the diffusibility or the intrinsic antioxidant activity of phenolic compounds.
DIFFUSION-weighted MR imaging (DWI) is a technique included within the routine MR protocol which depends on the normal diffusibility of water molecules in a tissue.
Carriers for immobilization of the bacteria which has good mechanical properties and good diffusibility of substrates must also be considered in any further studies.
When FDG is taken up by the cells of a tumor, it becomes phosphorylated by the enzyme hexokinase, which slows the degradation of FDG by the glycolytic cycle and reduces FDG's diffusibility out of the cell.
