adj
(Chemistry) chem having or involving an affinity for negative charge. Electrophilic reagents (electrophiles) are atoms, molecules, and ions that behave as electron acceptors. Compare nucleophilic

Reactions of the phosphorus fragments in these new, Reactive complexes with electrophiles will produce novel, Fundamentally interesting organophosphorus compounds avoiding chlorinated intermediates.
CO2 can be converted to alternate fuel by first reacting it with freshly prepared methyl magnesium bromide, CH3MgBr (Grignard's reagent) and then reducing the resultant product into Ethanol (C2H5OH) by using Sodium Borohydride (NaBH4) along with other electrophiles.
For example, if the chosen feature were "electrophile", then dividing the dataset according to this feature would result in two datasets: one with all electrophiles and one with no electrophiles.
sup][19] GSTP1 plays a critical role in the biotransformation and inactivation of toxic and carcinogenetic electrophiles, especially those in cigarette smoke [sup][20] and also inhibits apoptosis and promotes cellular proliferation through interacting with Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) pathway.
Adductomics is another top-down technique that employs modifications of blood proteins like hemoglobin or human serum albumin (HSA) to characterize exposures to reactive electrophiles that are inherently toxic but cannot be measured directly in biospecimens (Rubino et al.
17-19) TRPA1 is also robustly activated by electrophiles following covalent modification of cysteine (Cys) residues within the ankyrin repeat domain (ARD).
Gamma-tocopherol traps mutagenic electrophiles such as NOx and complements alpha-tocopherol: physiological implications.
As a matter of fact, GSTs are a class of abundant proteins that promote cellular defence against different artificial and naturally occurring environmental agents by catalysing the conjugation of glutathione to various electrophiles and xenobiotics, including ROS.
Functional activity of Nrf2 strongly depends on its regulation by the Keapl adaptor protein, in the absence of electrophiles or oxidants, Keapl binds to and sequesters Nrf2 in the cytoplasm, resulting in Nrf2 ubiquitination by Cul3 and degradation in the proteasome.
NRF2 mediates a transcriptional network of responsive genes that modulate in vivo mechanisms against oxidative damage and reactive electrophiles.
The Nrf2-keap1 signaling pathway is the major regulator of cellular protective responses to oxidative stresses caused by ROS and electrophiles (Taguchi et al.
In addition, GSH, the major intracellular thiol compound, is ubiquitous tripeptide produced by most mammalian cells and it is the main mechanism of antioxidant defense against ROS and electrophiles [10].
