• electron
  • Since its reduction potential is similar to that of oxygen and can be reduced by components of the electron transport chain, large doses of methylene blue are sometimes used as an antidote to potassium cyanide poisoning, a method first successfully tested in 1933 by Dr. Matilda Moldenhauer Brooks in San Francisco, although first demonstrated by Bo Sahlin of Lund University, in 1926.

  • Viologens, in their dicationic form, typically undergo two one-electron reductions. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • When a zinc rod is immersed in an aqueous solution of copper sulfate, a similar oxidation-reduction reaction occurs. (blausen.com)
  • When this is combined with CO2 from human impact such as car emissions or fertilizers, oxidation more readily occurs due to the overabundance of hydron ions and additional cation, increasing the rate of occurrence and duration of acidification taking place. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acids
  • It has been found in certain Candida yeast, where it participates in omega oxidation of fatty acids to produce acyl-CoA for energy or industrial use, as well as in other fungi, plants, and bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Long-chain fatty alcohol oxidases participate in omega-oxidation of long chain alkanes or fatty acids. (wikipedia.org)
  • This enzyme has been found in the following species: Yeast Candida cloacae Candida tropicalis Starmerella bombicola Yarrowia lipolytica Other Fungi Aspergillus terreus Mucor circinelloides Plants Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress) Lotus japonicus Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) Tanacetum vulgare (common tansy) This enzyme is required for production of dicarboxylic acids by industrial Candida yeast, which have nonfunctional beta oxidation pathways.
