Exogenous nitric oxide (NO) ameliorates salinity-induced oxidate stress in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) plants.
The weight loss values at 400[degrees]C for SA and SA2-Ca films are 72 and 58%, respectively, and the residue remaining after the degradation of crosslinked SA film (42%) is higher than that (28%) of SA film as expected since the former contains [Ca.sup.2+] ions and they can oxidate to CaC[O.sub.3] under air atmosphere.
Meanwhile, Figure 6(a) shows that the adsorption on the TNAs has reached saturation, indicating that the holes on the TNA electrode surface cannot oxidate all benzoic acid on the TNAs simultaneously.
This is a further proof that oxygen ion etching in high-speed impact CNTs can open the end; at the same time it not only can oxidate off redundant amorphous carbon, but also can oxidate off CNTs.
The intracellular ROS could oxidate DCFH and generate fluorescent product (DCF).

It is known that vitamin C reduces ferric to ferrous iron, improving its absorption and bioavailability (38); and that copper is required for ceruloplasmin synthesis, which oxidates ferrous to ferric iron to be bound to transferrin.
The tyrosinase, encoded by tyrosinase (TYR) gene, is known to be the rate-limiting enzyme affecting the production of melanin pigment (Sanchez-Ferrer et al., 1995), which oxidates tyrosine to dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) (Lerner and Fitzpatrick, 1950) and determines which type of melanin (eumelanin or phaeomelanin) could be synthesized (Ito et al., 2000).
