Techniques for determining spacing include adsorbing the thioether from a solution or a colloidal suspension, or controlling the degree of polymerization of the thioether.
RPZ is mainly metabolized nonenzymatically to RPZ thioether but minor pathways to demethylated RPZ by CYP2C19 and RPZ sulfone by CYP3A4 also exists (14).
The inactivation of SDH by 3NP is a two step process in which 3NP is first oxidized to 3-nitroacrylate by a two-electron transfer to the FAD subunit of SDH, followed by the interaction of 3-nitroacrylate with the thiol group of SDH forming a thioether which irreversibly inactivates the S DH activity (Fig.
