Five proteins that are differentially expressed during differentiation were associated with glucose metabolism: Fructose-biphosphate aldolase A (aldolase A), Alphaenolase (NNE), Malate dehydrogenase (MDH), L-lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogensae (GAPDH).
The antimicrobial activity of acidic EO water can be categorized by six mechanisms: inhibition of glucose oxidation (mainly the aldolase enzyme), disruption of protein synthesis, reactions with nucleic acids, unbalance of metabolism after destruction of key enzymes, induction of DNA lesions, and inhibition of oxygen uptake and oxidative phosphorylation.
