Our quantitative analysis of the reactivity of redox-sensitive TRP channels revealed that TRPA1 has the highest sensitivity to disulphides among the TRPs that we tested, predicting that only TRPA1 responds to a relatively inert electrophile, diallyl disulphide, with a redox potential of -2,950 mV.
The processed data of the research done using the "Hydra" plant were used for the establishment of the relationships of a change in the redox potential and pH of the treated water as a function of the number N of pulses at different parameters of electric discharge circuit (the capacitor charge voltage and the capacitance) given in Fig.
Nitrogen removal from landfill leachate in constructed wetlands with reed and willow: redox potential in the root zone.
The averages of the first and the last value of each parameter (pH-value, redox potential, electrical conductivity and temperature) were used to calculate the dissipation value.
Of these, Slc1a4 and Glx are downregulated in aging fibroblasts, whereas the other 4 are upregulated, and, therefore, would not explain the increase in extracellular redox potential.
A high metal ion concentration (such as residual copper from Bordeaux mixture) within the must suppresses cellular respiration, which lowers the redox potential and, ultimately, elevates [H.
Unlike hydroquinone the redox potential of L-cysteine in the pH range of our study is not affected as much.
It is clear from the data that the temperature plays an important role in reduction reaction, as by raising the reaction temperature from 60 up to 80[degrees]C, the redox potentials are increased, which could be attributed to the important role of temperature in accelerating the reduction reaction and producing greater amounts of reducing fragments in shorter time, and so higher redox potential values are observed.
