adduct

[′a‚dəkt]
(chemistry)
A chemical compound that forms from chemical addition of two species; for example, reaction of butadiene with styrene forms an adduct, 4-phenyl-1-cyclohexene.
The complex compound formed by association of an inclusion complex.

The researchers also wanted to determine the molecular reasons why the adducts weren't being fixed properly by the cells.
Its primary action is by the interaction with DNA in order to for DNA adducts. Inducing the cell apoptosis to discuss its side effects and the possible mechanisms for its resistance.
Ease of carbamate formation was visually monitored by placing 3 g of adduct, or adduct BnOH mixtures, in 35 mm diameter wells of a 2 x 3 well plate.
In this paper, the epoxy-based system 2Ph2Epo65 has been prepared by co-curing a mixture of 2Ph2Epo adduct and DGEBA with amines.
Those mapping studies required an extra chemical step -- removing the damage from an excised snippet before sequencing it -- because the DNA-reading enzyme needed for the sequencing process would otherwise get stuck at the adduct. In contrast, the new technique employs "translesional" enzymes with dimensions that allow it to keep reading a strand of DNA even when a bulky BPDE adduct is present.
