• lipase
  • These residues may participate in receptor binding or provide the protease, lipase, or esterase activity required for entry of the virus into a host cell. (pnas.org)
  • genetic
  • A number of new genetic strains are currently being engineered with the goal of producing varieties high in campesterol and other plant sterols. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the authors concluded that excessive long-term consumption of plant sterols might have a deleterious effect on vitamin E. Excessive use of plant sterols has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, and genetic conditions that cause extremely elevated levels of some phytosterols, such as sitosterol, are associated with higher risks of cardiovascular disease.

  • transport
  • ABC uptake porters take up a large variety of nutrients, biosynthetic precursors, trace metals and vitamins, while exporters transport lipids, sterols, drugs, and a large variety of primary and secondary metabolites. (wikipedia.org)
  • shown
  • Later a trifluoromethyl ketone (3-octylthio-1,1,1-trifluoro-2-propanone) was shown to be a highly potent, high affinity slow, tight binding inhibitor of the JH esterase of Trichoplusia ni, the same Lepidopteran which was used in the other study in this section. (wikipedia.org)
