Indeed, total [Zn.sup.2+] concentrations reach millimolar levels in the interior of the dense-core granule, where two [Zn.sup.2+] ions coordinate six insulin monomers to form the hexameric structure on which insulin crystals are based [3].
These results indicate that NAC treatment, at millimolar concentrations, is capable of completely diminishing the production of both IL-6 and TNF-[alpha] by H37Rv-infected neutrophils (Figures 4(b) and 4(c)).
The slides were immersed in a lysis solution adjusted to pH 10 (NaCl 2.5 molars [M], [Na.sub.2]EDTA 100 millimolar [mM], TRIS 10 mM, Sarcosinate 1%, Triton X-100 1%, and DMSO 10%) at 4[degrees]C for 90 minutes.
Then, zinc oxide nanoparticles at concentrations of 0.5 millimolar (mM), 1 mM, 2 mM, 5 mM and 10 mM were added to the solution samples.
Fat hydrolysis is not the rate-limiting step of treatment; however, millimolar concentrations of long-chain fatty acids are capable of inhibiting the growth of numerous microorganisms.
Glutathione (L-[gamma]-Glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine, GSH) is a sulfhydryl (-SH) antioxidant, antitoxin, and enzyme cofactor, which often attains millimolar levels inside cells, making it one of the most highly concentrated intracellular antioxidants.

The millimolar extinction coefficients for creatinine have two distinct maxima around 202 and 235 nm and one minimum around 220 nm [14].
Sixty-four to one hundred and twenty eight scans were collected with simultaneous water and lipid suppressed pulse sequence (TR=2000 ms, TE=30 or 135 to 270 ms) in order to improve the detection of metabolites present in millimolar concentration.
Using an alkanethiol internal standard, highly linear mass spectral calibration curves for various binary and ternary alkanethiol mixtures have been obtained over the micromolar to millimolar concentration range.
According to their material safety data sheet (MSDS), Fisher Scientific estimates that their tobacco extract contains almost 0.5% nicotine, which corresponds to 31 mM, so millimolar concentrations can be obtained by extracting tobacco into water -- a procedure commonly used by teachers preparing for the Daphnia heart rate lab.
