In the present study, quercetin reduced radical formation significantly under all investigated experimental conditions: upon UV exposure and AAPH-stimulation, as well as under basal conditions, with [IC.sub.50] values in the micromolar range.
We estimate that curcumin at micromolar levels in the blood did not have any significant effect on the survival of the fat grafts.
To determine the ratio, the resulting micromolar unit of TAS was changed to mmol/L, and the OSI value was calculated according to the following equation: OSI (arbitrary unit)=TOS (micromolar hydrogen peroxide equivalent/L)/TAS (micromolar trolox equivalent/L).
The two molecules also reduced the viral RNA thus confirming the antiviral activity "Out of the two molecules, PeP-I is more effective as an antiviral molecule as no virus was detected in cultured cells at concentration as low as 10 mM (microMolar)," study co-author Rajat Mudgal from IIT-Roorkee said.
We first reported that DBT activated human RXR[alpha] at micromolar concentrations (Grun et al.
However, MRI faces the challenge of detecting MI agents that are usually in nanomolar concentrations, whereas the lower limits of sensitivity for Gd detection is in the micromolar range.
Saccharin and acesulfame potassium were shown to bind within the CA active site and exhibit binding affinities in the micromolar range [120, 121].
The [Pr.sup.3+]:La[F.sub.3] ([C.sub.Pr] = 7%) NPs are nontoxic at micromolar concentrations toward COLO-320 cell line.
However, this apparent contradiction may not be surprising given that fluorescence requires a micromolar concentration while autoradiography proceeds in the low nanomolar range, a concentration relevant to in vivo PET studies.
