This can be explained by increased reduction rates at higher reactant concentrations, which has the same effect as using a stronger reductant.
These results suggest that enzyme activity was limited more by insufficient [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] at the reduction site at the onset of light, rather than by the supply of reductant, even though the leaves contained high concentrations of [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] (Table 1).
pulchella tissue homogenates by using two independent methods (SOD-inhibitable NBT and cytochrome c reduction), and we find evidence to support the interpretation that superoxide ion is the primary reductant of NBT in these anemones.
HC-LNC is an aftertreatment solution designed to reduce harmful NOx emissions from diesel engines, using E85 and/or ULSD as the reductant.
17] found that if the engine can be operated at slightly rich conditions, the excess of hydrogen can act as a reductant in the three way catalytic converter (TWC) for effectively reducing the N[O.
At this level off portion it means that saturation kinetics is achieved thus indicating the maximum limit of reducing power of the reductant (Fig.

For our assay, we used a platinum catalyst reducer column and an alcohol mobile phase as reductant.

The opposite strategy of reducing NOx significantly with the aftertreatment would have meant either SCR (selective catalytic reduction) using urea as a reductant, or a lean NOx trap technique.
This remarkable flexibility is important in balancing widely varying demands for ATP, reductant, and intermediates found in various tissues and at various times.
