  • occurs
  • 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)
  • biological
  • Since the obtaining of useful energy in a biological process generally involves oxidation of some foodstuff, it follows that a large negative redox potential like -0.32 V for NAD + suggests a useful role in producing a reduced product, like NADH. (gsu.edu)
  • 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.

  • negative
  • So you can guarantee that this is going to be a little difficult for you in the beginning to remember that reduction is the gaining of a negative charge. (brightstorm.com)
  • causes
  • In the two examples we have seen, zinc is oxidized because it causes the reduction of other substances, zinc is said to be a reducing agent. (blausen.com)
