Hydrothermal synthesis of boehmite and α-alumina from Bayer’s alumina trihydrate
a-Alumina (Al2O3) is a ceramic material used widely due to its versatile properties such as high temperature stability, high strength at high temperature, high hardness with higher wear resistance,
Hemin-mediated oxidation of dithiothreitol reduces oxygen to H2O
These studies on the hemin-catalyzed oxidation of dithiothreitol provide a chemical model for a direct 4-electron reduction of O2 to H2O.
Hemin-mediated oxidative inactivation of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl CoA reductase
SummaryAddition of hemoglobin, methemoglobin, hemin or hematin in the assay mixture of rat liver 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl CoA (HMGCoA) reductase inhibited the activity of the enzyme. The inhibition
Mechanism of inactivation of HMGCoA reductase.
2 types of rapid inactivation of the activity of microsomal hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA (HMG- CoA) reductase are reviewed, which involve the cytosolic protein, fermodulin, and free free $Fe^{2+}$, which appear to mask the SH groups at the active site.
Use of energy dispersive method with tungsten carbide opposed anvil high pressure set-up
The use of energy dispersive method has been discussed to record the X-ray diffraction data from a tungsten carbide opposed anvil high pressure set-up. It is pointed out that a proper collimation of
The pressure-volume relation of ytterbium up to 9 GPa
The pressure-volume relation of ytterbium has been determined up to 9 Gpa using tungsten carbide opposed anvil high pressure x-ray camera. The fcc phase of ytterbium is observed between one
