Termini and his team analyzed mice with diabetes to see how elevated blood glucose levels can cause a DNA damage, called adducts. The researchers found that the adduct, N2-(1-carboxyethyl)-2'-deoxyguanosine (CEdG), appeared high in diabetic animals.A
Indeed, they found a DNA adduct, called N2-(1-carboxyethyl)-2'-deoxyguanosine, or CEdG, that occurred more frequently in the diabetic models than in normal cells or mice.
We outlined in the previous sections the interaction between cisplatin and the DNA to form covalent adduct with purine DNA base.
In flooring applications, amines are often used in adduct form, where excess amine is pre reacted with epoxy resin.
Within this framework the insertion of D-A adduct into an epoxy system could combine exceptional mechanical properties with mendable capability.
This bond, or adduct, means that the genes can no longer make proper proteins and DNA can't be duplicated properly during cell division.
[24] were the first to conduct a meta-analysis to investigate the influence of the GSTM1 genotype on the formation of DNA adducts. Their results showed that the DNA adduct levels in null GSTM1 carriers were significantly higher than those in active GSTM1 carriers among workers who were occupationally exposed to PAHs.
The [rho] and [[nabla].sup.2][rho] parameters at the bond critical points (BCPs) concerning dipole polarizability tensors were calculated based on the optimized structures (taking into consideration the already calculated interaction energy) using the AIM approach and applying B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) (adducts 7AlaB, 7LysB, 7GluB, and 7MetB), B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p) (adducts 7GluB6 and 7MetB6), PBE0/6-31G(d,p) (adducts 7LysP), and M06L/6-31G(d,p) (adduct 7AlaM) levels of theory, respectively.
Key statement: Provided is a copolymer of a conjugated diene compound and a non-conjugated olefin, the copolymer being a block copolymer, the conjugated diene compound unit having 1,2 adduct (including 3,4 adduct) content of 5% or less or the conjugated diene compound unit having a cis-1,4 bond content of more than 92%, in which preferred examples of the conjugated diene compound include 1,3-butadiene and isoprene, and preferred examples of the non-conjugated olefin include ethylene, propylene and 1-butene.
The expanded label now includes the addition of two thumb muscles--the flexor pollicis longus, a muscle in the forearm that flexes the thumb, and the adductor pollicis, a muscle in the hand that functions to adduct the thumb--increasing the maximum dose from 360 to 400 units for the treatment of upper limb spasticity.
