While at micromolar concentrations, biguanides confer antineoplastic action; at millimolar ones, they inhibit mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes and are toxic for all the cells.
The concentration of cellular polyamines is typically low and is precisely controlled by metabolic modulation including polyamine uptake, transport, and interchange [8]; thus the intracellular concentration of polyamines is generally in the millimolar range.
Calpain 2, however, belongs to the m-calpain group and requires millimolar changes in [Ca.sup.2+] levels to induce its activity.
fermentans numerically increased in colony numbers from November to February and produces mainly yeast-like cells on media containing millimolar concentrations of urea and diammonium phosphate (O'Brien et al., 2007; Sanna et al., 2012).
This method is a "gold standard" method for the determination of MG concentration in the millimolar range.
Alpha-7 nicotinic receptors can also be activated by choline itself, at millimolar concentrations, many orders of magnitude higher than the concentrations required for activation by acetylcholine.
Glutathione is the major antioxidant of low molecular weight containing SH group present in mammalian cells, in millimolar amounts in most cells.1 All forms of mercury regardless physical or chemical form are one of the most dangerous pollutants in environment.2-4 There are evidences that mercury reacts with reduced form of glutathione due to which in many specific types of cells glutathione contents are decreased as in human erythrocytes5,6 indicating that GSH is the big oxidant protectant.

Physiological plasma concentrations of C4 are in the micromolar range [39], whilst in previous studies C4 has been used in the millimolar range.
Glutathione (GSH) is present in eukaryotic cells at millimolar concentrations and plays direct or indirect roles in many important biological phenomena, including metabolic activity and cell defence against several pathogens, like viruses (Nencioni et al., 2011).
