An enzyme in anaerobic glycolysis that catalyzes the cleavage of fructose 1,6-diphosphate to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate; used also in the reverse reaction.

an enzyme; one of the lyases, which split and synthesize carbon bonds (—C—C—). Its molecular mass is 147,000–180,000; the aldolase molecule is composed of two polypeptide chains. In animals aldolase is generally found in the skeletal muscles; in plants it is found in areas where photosynthesis takes place. Aldolase condenses aldehydes; this is the derivation of the name. It is catalyzed by a reversible reaction: fructose diphosphate ⇌ 3–phosphoglycerine aldehyde + phosphodioxyacetone. In plant tissues aldolase takes part in the dark phase of photosynthesis; in animals, in the process of glycolysis, which leads to the production of such energy-rich compounds as ATP.

While the bond issue will lead to a small increase in ALD's leverage (ALD's pro forma gross debt/tangible equity ratio would increase by less than 20bp to around 5.8x based on end-1H18 financials), this does not materially affect ALD's overall standalone credit profile.

Completion of the ALD transaction will lead to a shift in NMGA's focus from mineral exploration to debt collection; and NMG will subject to shareholder approval seek divestment opportunities for its remaining mineral exploration business, alternatively close down that business.

ALD gained temporary fame in the early 90s as a result of the critically acclaimed 1992 film “Lorenzo's Oil” directed by George Miller documenting one family's fight to save their son's life by inventing their own treatment still in use today.

Hugo Moser and his wife, Ann Moser, developed an interest in studying ALD in 1978, when the group at Albert Einstein in New York City reported that patients with ALD had increased very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA), mainly of 26 carbons chain length (C26:0) in brain and adrenal.
One drawback of CVD and ALD is that many of the precursors tend to be either pyrophoric or flammable and may be sensitive to air or water.
Operational leasing firm ALD Automotive sold 4,000 used vehicles through its auction platform ALD Carmarket in three years since its launch.The firm was able to sell 524 used cars in the first five months of 2013, and 92 percent of the vehicles have been purchased online by dealers and traders representing local and export markets.ALD Automotive has seen a 37 percent hike in the number of online bidders this year and the number of offers received for an auctioned vehicle climbed to an average of 20.This year, the firm plans to further develop its remarketing activity ad the used cars sales on its online platform.ALD Automotive is the subsidiary of BRD - Groupe Societe Generale and the ALD Automotive group.Source:
In this paper, we grew Ti[O.sub.2] thin films on Si wafers by atomic layer deposition (ALD) which performs excellent uniformity, accurate thickness control, and almost 100% step coverage on substrate surface [14].
Abstract In this study, innovative [TiO.sub.2]/[Al.sub.2][O.sub.3] mono/ multilayers were applied by atomic layer depositions (ALD) on ASTM-AZ-31 magnesium/aluminum alloy to enhance its well-known scarce corrosion resistance.
