• enzymes
  • A large number of metal containing proteins, such as hemocyanin (a Cu metal containingprotein present in some invertebrate animals which helps them in the transport of O2;like hemoglobin in humans) retain metal ions in their active sites so a great interest is developed in such metal containing enzymes which are ureases, laccase, tyrosinase and ascorbate oxidase [5-containing enzyme urease (urea amidohydrolase EC 3.

  • apoptosis
  • Treatment with ascorbate in conjunction with extracts prepared from several medicinal herbs stimulated apoptosis and disrupted the cell cycle. (hindawi.com)
  • vitro
  • The present studies demonstrate that a combined use of ascorbate and herbal extracts results in ROS production and a significant decrease in the number of cancer cells after a single in vitro treatment. (hindawi.com)
  • assay
  • 100 [micro]l of pH-adjusted sample extract was mixed with 900 [micro]l assay buffer, and the change in absorbance at 265 nm was recorded after reaction with 2 units ascorbate oxidase (Logan et al. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • reactive
  • Here we show that MGd is endocytosed by the clathrin-dependent pathway with ensuing lysosomal membrane permeabilization, most likely via formation of reactive oxygen species involving redox-active metabolites, such as ascorbate. (diva-portal.org)
