The effects of transition metal ions (M2+) such as Mn2+, Co2+, Ni2+, and Cu2+ on the functional and structural stabilities of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) were investigated with respect to reversible chemical denaturation, Michaelis-Menten kinetics, chemical modification and time-dependent catalytic activity. Conformational Gibbs free energy (deltaGo(H2O))(More)
—The design process of a double-sided slotted TORUS axial-flux permanent-magnet (AFPM) motor suitable for direct drive of electric vehicle (EV) is presented. It used sizing equation and Finite Element Analysis (FEA). AFPM motor is a high-torque-density motor easily mounted compactly onto a vehicle wheel, fitting the wheel rim perfectly. A preliminary design(More)
—This paper presents an inside-out axial-flux permanent-magnet brushless DC motor optimized by Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Genetic Algorithm (GA) that uses sizing equation. The double-sided slotted-stator designed TORUS motor has sinusoidal back EMF waveform and maximum power density. The GA obtained the dimensions that gave the motor its highest(More)
In the present study, feasibility of laboratory detection of damaged seeds in precision planters caused by malfunction of seed metering device was investigated. An acoustic-based intelligent system was developed for detection of damaged pelleted tomato seeds. To improve the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) models a total of 2000 seeds sound signals, 1000(More)
In the presence of the anionic surfactant sodium n-dodecyl sulphate (SDS), horseradish peroxidase (HRP) undergoes a deactivation process. Suicide inactivation of horseradish peroxidase by hydrogen peroxide(3 mM) was monitored by the absorbance change in product formation in the catalytic reaction cycle. The progress curve of the catalytic reaction cycle was(More)
Micelle-templated polyguaiacol nanowires were successfully prepared via polymerization oxidation of guaiacol (o-methoxy phenol) by peroxidase enzyme in the presence of hydrogen peroxide at mild reaction conditions. The dimensions of the prepared nanowires were controlled by tuning the size and shape of the micelle structure via changing and controlling the(More)
The kinetics of microperoxidase-11 (MP-11) in the oxidation reaction of guaiacol (AH) by hydrogen peroxide was studied, taking into account the inactivation of enzyme during reaction by its suicide substrate, H2O2. Concentrations of substrates were so selected that: 1) the reaction was first-order in relation to benign substrate, AH and 2) high ratio of(More)
