A new kinetic model is presented for analysis of experimental data of oxidation process catalyzed by milk xanthine oxidase. The kinetics for two substrates, xanthine and its analog 2-chloroadenine, in a broad pH range (5.8–9.0) are best described by an equation which is a rational function of degree 2:3 and 2:2, respectively. 
UVC induced oxidation of chloropurines: excited singlet and triplet pathways for the photoreaction.
TLDR
Experimental evidence allows to conclude that the triplet state is involved in photodimer formation whereas the hydroxypurine is formed from the reaction of the excited singlet state of chloropurines with the solvent (water addition) through heterolytic C-Cl bond rupture.
Confidence bands for rational rate equations
The standard Michaelis-Menten expression for the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction (v) can be extended using the ratio of two polynomials in the substrate concentration (s). Such rational

TLDR
It is concluded that relatively simple mechanisms give pseudo-steady-state rate equations of high degree and considerable complexity, especially when catalytic steps are included, for then the rate equations, are for multi-site mechanisms, of higher degree, allowing increasingly complex curve shapes.

TLDR
The ligand-dependent stabilization pattern of the E. coli PNP was established and it was shown that the new derivatives, similarly as the natural purine bases, are able to form a dead-end ternary complex with the enzyme and orthophosphate.

TLDR
It is now clear that oxygen-derived free radicals play an important part in several models of experimentally induced reperfusion injury, and Dysfunction induced by free radicals may be a major component of ischemic diseases of the heart, bowel, liver, kidney, and brain.
