Thermochemical multistep waterand CO2-splitting processes are promising options to face future energy problems. Particularly, the possible incorporation of solar power makes these processes sustainable and environmentally attractive since only water, CO2 and solar power are used; the concentrated solar energy is converted into storable and transportable(More)
Human platelets contain diglyceride kinase, an enzyme that catalyzes the phosphorylation of diacylglycerol by adenosine 5'-triphosphate to yield phosphatidic acid. The majority of the platelet enzyme is particulate-bound, and membrane fractions of platelet homogenates have a higher specific activity than granule fractions. Both deoxycholate and magnesium(More)
The thermodynamic redox properties of ceria and ceria zirconia solid solutions are analysed with a new methodology for modelling such systems based on the statistical mechanics of lattice configurations. Experimental thermogravimetric equilibrium data obtained for small non-stoichiometry measurements are combined with literature data to cover a large range(More)
Homogenates of human platelets can mediate the synthesis of phosphatidylinositol from myoinositol and cytidine diphosphate diglyceride. The cytidine diphosphate diglyceride: myoinositol, phosphatidyl transferase activity is particulate-bound, and the highest specific activity is found in the membrane fraction. The production of phosphatidylinositol is(More)
Homogenates of human platelets contain an enzyme which catalyzes the formation of cytidine diphosphate diglyceride from cytidine triphosphate and phosphatidic acid. The enzymatic activity could not be dissociated from platelet particles and the greatest specific activity was found in the membrane fraction. The K(m) for cytidine triphosphate was 0.16(More)
Platelet homogenates contain an ethanolaminephosphotransferase (EC 2.7.8.1) that catalyzes the synthesis of ethanolamine phosphoglycerides from cytidine-5'-diphosphate ethanolamine and 1-radyl-2-acyl-sn-glycerols. The enzyme is particulate-bound and requires Mn2+ and bile salts for optimal activity. The apparent Km of the enzyme for cytidine-5'-diphosphate(More)
