It has been observed that the presence of certain substances is necessary for the active activity of a number of enzymes. Such substances are called activators. For example, animal amylase can break down starch into dextrins and maltose only in the presence of sodium chloride, since it needs chloride ions for its action. Some organic compounds isolated from living organisms are also enzyme activators. Modern researchers have shown that the composition of some enzyme systems also necessarily includes ions of calcium, magnesium, potassium, chlorine, phosphoric acid, etc. In some cases, the action of the enzyme requires the presence of special chemical compounds, which were called coenzymes. Thus, the active enzyme is a complex consisting of the enzyme itself and the coenzyme. The latter have properties different from those of enzymes.[ ...]

Copper is the enzyme activator. When interacting with the substrate, diamine oxidase forms a yellow complex under anaerobic conditions, which, apparently, occurs due to the formation of a chelate complex. In animals, the oxidation of histamine is carried out by an enzyme similar to diamine oxidase, histaminase, which contains both of these coenzymes in the active center. Add them 0.15-3.0% depending on the composition of the rubber.[ ...]

It is used as an activator in the production of soft polyurethane foam (foam rubber). [ ...]

Zinc oxide is an activator of sulfur vulcanization of unsaturated rubbers, it is used in the form of a fine powder, and therefore its dust is intensively released in preparatory production. According to the degree of impact on the human body, zinc oxide belongs to the III hazard class. Highly dispersed dust of zinc oxide causes diseases of the upper respiratory tract, gastric tract and kidneys.[ ...]

In the limiting case, the activator shifts the balance between the R- and T-forms to such an extent that the R-state prevails, cooperativity disappears, and the Michaelis-Menten kinetics is fulfilled, which is confirmed experimentally for a number of enzymes (Fig. 8.4).[ .. .]

The most promising activators are chlorine, sulfuric acid, aluminum sulfate, sodium silicofluoride. The method and mode of activation strongly affect the physicochemical and technological properties of the finished product and may be different depending on the conditions of water treatment. The main indicators in assessing activation by acidic reagents are the degree of neutralization of the alkalinity of liquid glass and the final pH value of the sol.[ ...]

Substances used as reagents-activators are very diverse, since their action depends not only on the mineral composition of suspended solids, but also on the reagent-collector used. For example, calcium ions serve as activators of quartz during its flotation with soaps, but they are suppressors in the case of using cationic collectors. During the flotation of some aluminosilicates with the addition of cationic substances, hydrofluoric acid is used as an activator.[ ...]

Stearic acid С17Н35СООН is a secondary activator of sulfur vulcanization of unsaturated rubbers. It is characterized by the formation of symmetrical hydrogen bonds between two molecules [301], which leads to elongated dimers with a polar core.[ ...]

Colorless fine crystalline powder. C. The solubility of 0.424 g of the activator in 100 ml of ethanol (4.24: 1000) is complete. Highly soluble in water.[ ...]

An aqueous solution of carbamide is used for dewaxing. Methanol and isopropanol are used as solvent and activator.[ ...]

Studies on charge transfer stacking were carried out in an electrolytic activator with a volume of 2.5 l, divided into two equal parts by a diaphragm (glass - "pyrex"; particles 0. 2 ... 0.5 mm), which allows you to create unipolar conductivity in the electrolyte (distilled water) due to hydrodynamic resistance in the system. The electrodes were stainless steel plates 2 mm thick and 280 cm2 in area, located at a distance of 60 mm from each other. The electrolyte temperature during the experiments was maintained at 25°C. The voltage on the electrodes, depending on the experiment, varied in the range from 0 to 330 V. A capillary antimony microelectrode was used as a reference electrode, to which a constant bias micropotential from the working electrode was applied.[ .. .]

Preparation of activated water was carried out using an electrolytic diaphragm-type activator, which was a rectangular glass vessel with a volume of 2.5 l, divided into two equal parts by a diaphragm (Pyrex glass, particle diameter - 0.2 ... 0.5 mm) , by passing a constant voltage current through the activator. The degree of activation was controlled by changing the pH and Eb of water. In the process of slow cooling and subsequent crystallization of water, the sample was shielded from external electromagnetic fields (several isolated metal shells). [ ...]

A batch plant for the preparation of AA was built at the station. Chlorine was used as an activator of sodium silicate. The plant consisted of a tank for activating a 1.5% sodium silicate solution, a circulation pump, an ejector for mixing a sodium silicate solution with gaseous chlorine, a chlorinator, a dosing tank for storing AA working solutions, and a metering pump for supplying AA to the treatment plant. The installation provided a one-time preparation of 4.5 m3 of the working solution of AA (0.75–0.5%).[ ...]

Penetration of DINOC into plant tissue is highly dependent on temperature. At 13°C and above with the addition of an activator DINOC penetrates after 30-60 minutes, without an activator (at the same temperature) after 5-6 hours. Rain falling after this period will not impair the processing results. At temperatures below 13°, it takes several days for DINOC to penetrate.[ ...]

Due to the presence of sulfhydryl groups, glutathione and cysteine ​​are strong reducing agents and activators of certain enzymes. They activate, in particular, the activity of the proteolytic enzyme papain, which breaks down isoelectric proteins. Papain can only show its activity in the reduced state, to which it passes under the influence of sulfhydryl groups of glutathione and cysteine. Sulfur is also part of vitamins: thiamine (B and biotin, which are important in the metabolism of plants.[ ...]

The most detailed preparation of sols A K was developed with sulfuric (hydrochloric) acid, chlorine, aluminum sulfate; the last two activators are common reagents at water treatment plants (see paragraphs 7.3.2 and 9.1.3).[ ...]

proteins, CM and troponin C, converting them into enzyme activators.[ ...]

The transformation of caprolactam into polyacrylamide polymer proceeds at high temperature and elevated or normal pressure in the presence of an activator. As an activator, water, AG salt (adhesion acid and hexomitelenediamine salt), aminocaproic acid, etc. are used.[ ...]

Thus, it can be imagined that the lack of flowering in long-day species on a short day is associated with an insufficiently intensive metabolism of carbohydrates and growth activators - gibberellins and auxins - and, as a result, with the inability of plants to form stems. The absence of flowering in short-day species on a long day is associated with an insufficiently intensive exchange of nitrogen compounds and substances that activate the differentiation of generative organs, including anthesips, and the resulting inability of plants to form flowers. When the long-singing and short-day species are transferred to a favorable day length, the metabolism of the corresponding substances is increased, and the plants bloom like neutral species, in which both flowering phases are not critical, that is, they are stably fixed and proceed at any day length.[ ...]

However, the most effective use of sulfur curing systems in the form of eutectic mixtures and solid solutions is possible only when the interaction of accelerators, sulfur and activators by methods of physical and physico-chemical modifications before their introduction into rubber compounds. The resulting eutectic mixtures and molecular complexes are characterized by a high degree of defectiveness of the crystals, low melting point and excess free energy, causing an increase in the degree of distribution and dispersion of the components in the rubber mixture and their functional activity in the vulcanization processes. [ ...]

Nickel has a significant impact on crop yields. With elevated nickel levels in the cornea of ​​the eye, coratitis occurs. Nickel retains the configuration of RNA molecules and is an activator of some enzymes. The nickel content in the earth's crust as a whole is 58-75 mg/kg. In soils, the level of nickel is 40 mg/kg. Its content in loamy rocks of the aeration zone [20] can reach 100 mg/kg; in sandy soils, the concentration of nickel is much lower than its concentration in loams and is 8–15 mg/kg. In clayey rocks of the aeration zone of one of the studied regions of the Moscow region, the nickel content ranges from 5 to 50 mg/kg.[ ...]

Tire factories. The raw materials for the production of tires are natural and synthetic rubbers; carbon black and other fillers; softeners - stearic acid, rosin, oils and resins; accelerators - captax, altax, etc.; activator - zinc oxide; vulcanizing agents - sulfur, etc. The technological process consists of the preparation of raw materials, the manufacture of semi-finished products, the assembly and vulcanization of products. In addition to the main technological workshops, tire factories include storage buildings, compressor stations, energy facilities and facilities for repair and support services.[ ...]

In some European countries (Belgium, Holland) DINOC has been widely used as a selective herbicide on flax. For the processing of flax 5-15 cm high, 3-5 kg ​​of herbicide per 1 ha are used. In this case, it is not recommended to add activators and spreaders: they increase the degree of penetration of the herbicide, and cultivated plants can be damaged. Plants are sprayed in dry sunny weather.[ ...]

Inhalation of air ions of negative polarity causes a number of phenomena in the body that indicate their activating effect on specific chemicals in the body - enzymes, enzymes, vitamins, hormones and others activators or catalysts of biochemical reactions, their complexes and groups. The exchange of substances is possible only under one obligatory condition: it is necessary that the molecules of the exchanged substances be ionized. This is firmly established for proteins, fats, carbohydrates and salts. Electrically neutral molecules of these substances do not enter into any biochemical compounds and do not take part in the exchange. For example, when colliding with molecules of a specific or activated protein, food molecules themselves become activated, i.e. such changes occur in their electronic structure, after which electrons can be transferred through a series of oxidoreductions.[ ...]

New methods for the production of regenerate have been developed in our country: the dispersion method and the radiation method. The dispersion method consists in the mechanical grinding of rubber to a fine-grained state in an aqueous medium. The process is carried out in the presence of devulcanization activators and surfactants at a low temperature (40–60 °C), which prevents the growth of oxidative processes and significant changes in the rubber components of rubber during regeneration. The radiation method (when exposed to -radiation) can be used to regenerate rubber based on butyl rubber. Thorough grinding of the rubber is not necessary.[ ...]

Colorless liquid. Density 0.723 at 25°. Melting point - 114.8 °, boiling point 89.5 °. Steam pressure 66 mmHg Art. at 20°. 1.5 g of triethylamine is dissolved in 100 ml of water. Let's well dissolve in organic solvents. Triethylamine is used in organic synthesis, and also as an activator in the synthesis of rigid polyurethane foam. It irritates the mucous membranes of the eyes and skin.[ ...]

Under the enzymatic kinetics understand the patterns of change in the reaction rate depending on the chemical nature of the reactants and the conditions of their interaction. Under the conditions of interaction is understood the effect of the concentration of reactants, temperature, pressure, the presence of inhibitors or activators, etc. In this section, of all the listed factors, only the effect of the concentration of the substrate and the enzyme is considered.[ ...]

For the decomposition of sodium silicates, substances are used that displace weak silicic acid from its salt - mineral acids (HC1, H2504, etc. ), carbon and sulfur dioxides (CO2, Sb), acid salts (NaH504, NaHBO3, NaHCO3), and also salts that form acids during hydrolysis [Na251P6, Al2(504)3, AlCl3, FeCl3, Fe504, (MH4)2504, etc.]. Chlorine, ion-exchange resins can be successfully used as an activator for the decomposition of liquid glass; promotes decomposition and electrolysis.[ ...]

As herbicides DINOC salts are used - sodium and ammonium. The preparation is soluble in water and applied by spraying. To accelerate its penetration into plant tissues, an activator, ammonium sulfate, is added to the solution.[ ...]

Technical, economic and environmental indicators are the basis for selecting the device design. For example, the production of mineral fertilizers, which is also related to complex CTS, can be represented, regardless of the process being carried out, with only three groups of apparatus (after decomposition, for example, according to the method of mixing with the help of: I - a moving body; II - a mechanical activator; III - a gaseous agent). [ ...]

It is known [254] that even activated molecules react with each other only if they are oriented relative to each other in a certain way. In turn, the configuration of molecules in organic crystals is determined by the spatial arrangement of mutually bound atoms that make up the molecule [87]. As already noted, all crystalline accelerators, sulfur, and activators are molecular crystals that are capable of entering into intense intermolecular interaction when they are mixed with each other even under normal temperature conditions [239], which is one of the determining factors for further transformations in mixtures of these components with increasing temperature.[ ...]

The structure of coenzyme A is shown below.[ ...]

Magnesium is part of the main pigment of green leaves - chlorophyll. Magnesium maintains the structure of ribosomes by binding RNA and protein. The large and small subunits of ribosomes associate together only in the presence of magnesium. Hence, protein synthesis does not occur with a lack of magnesium, and even more so in its absence. Magnesium is an activator of many enzymes. So, for example, by joining the pnrophosphate group, magnesium binds ATP with the corresponding enzymes. In this regard, all reactions involving the transfer of a phosphate group (most synthesis reactions, as well as many reactions of energy metabolism) require the presence of magnesium.[ ...]

The efficiency of the cleaning process in aerotanks, the qualitative state and oxidizing ability of activated sludge are determined by a number of conditions, which include: the composition and properties of wastewater, hydrodynamic mixing conditions, the ratio of the amounts of pollutants supplied and viable sludge, the oxygen regime in the structure, temperature and active reaction environment, the presence of batteries, the presence of process activators or inhibitors, etc. Some of these conditions can be changed during operation to control the technological regime. The basis for such changes is the simultaneous accounting and comparison of all the specified parameters. [ ...]

The weakest point of Monod et al.'s theory is the symmetry assumption. The use of a minimum number of intermediate states leads to the fact that the model becomes only a kind of approximation to reality. But it is precisely in this assumption that the advantage of the model lies: it provides a simple scheme that explains the experimental data. Predictions such as the transition from sigmoid to Michaelis-Menten kinetics at sufficiently high activator concentrations for regulatory enzymes can be made whether or not an intermediate state is assumed. It should also be noted that, despite its simplicity, this theory explains the nature of oxygen binding curves for a number of mutant forms of hemoglobin (see below).[ ...]

In addition to this method, another method was used - extraction of the crushed dry mass of nodules with aqueous 60% ethyl alcohol; the resulting extract was used in experiments as a source of nitrogen-fixing enzyme. Tests of the activity of isolated preparations were carried out in a hermetic chamber in an atmosphere enriched with Li,5. It was found that the nitrogen-fixing activity of the enzyme preparations is markedly increased by the addition of certain substances that can serve as enzyme activators, hydrogen carriers, acceptors of enzymatic synthesis products, and an energy source. Magnesium, molybdenum, biotin, pyruvate, ascorbic acid, ATP were used as such substances. All additives were introduced into the chamber in a buffered phosphate solution pH 6.8 with a total liquid volume of 35–40 ml.[ ...]

In the case of a monolithic backfill, the backfill material must have the ability to set (harden) and have a uniaxial compressive strength of 2.0–2.5 MPa. These properties depend on the chemical composition, degree of grinding, hardness and some other characteristics of the material used for filling. Therefore, various solid wastes from mining, processing, and other enterprises are not equally suitable for these purposes. In most cases, it is necessary to add setting activators to such materials (dump sandstones, burnt rocks, enrichment wastes, etc. ): cement, lime, gypsum, liquid glass, etc. At the same time, certain types of crushed slags, for example, can themselves play the role binders.[ ...]

The activator in these liquids is neodymium, which dissolves in an amount of several percent.[ ...]

Calcium increases the viscosity of the cytoplasm, which can be seen in experiments with plasmolysis forms. In calcium salts, plasmolysis has a concave shape, since the more viscous cytoplasm hardly lags behind the cell membranes. The calcium salt of lecitype is part of the membranes, so the presence of calcium is important for their normal functioning. Calcium is involved in maintaining the structure of chromosomes, being a link between DNA and protein. With a lack of calcium, chromosome damage and disruption of the mitotic cycle are observed. Calcium is also needed to maintain the structure of mitochondria and ribosomes. Calcium is an activator of such enzymes as phosphorylase, adeyosipgryphosphatase and some others. Calcium reacts with various organic acids, giving salts, and thus is, to a certain extent, a regulator of the pH of cell sap. [ ...]

According to KI Lukashev (1964), manganese plays an exceptionally important role in the development of living organisms. It is involved in photosynthesis, respiration of plants, activates the process of oxidation and decomposition. Manganese is found in both lower and higher animal organisms. We noted the highest content of manganese in the gills of all fish species - 18.0-26.5 mg/kg dry weight. The content of manganese varies from 1.1 (muscles) to 45.8 (scales) mg/kg dry weight. In the gills and scales of adults, the content of manganese does not differ significantly (Table 13). Manganese is involved in the conversion of phosphorus compounds, in the formation of fats, in the processes of synthesis and breakdown of carbohydrates, is an activator of enzymes and, in some cases, is included in their composition (Lukashov, 1984).[ ...]

The calculation of the specific growth rate of the Rhodococcus cell culture showed that the introduction of shale kerogen oxidation products from 0. 001 to 0.003 wt % into the aquatic environment with oil contributed to a more intensive increase in the number of Rhodococci. Thus, the oxidation products of shale kerogen were activators of the growth of rhodococci on oil hydrocarbons in the aquatic environment.[ ...]

light (photodegradation). Photoactive groups in amounts that do not affect the physical and chemical properties of products are attached to the main chains of polymers during their synthesis. By absorbing ultraviolet rays, these groups use their energy to break polymer chains, causing products to become brittle and crumble under atmospheric influence. Along with this, it is necessary to ensure a certain service life of the product. Therefore, along with decay activators, additives of stabilizers are introduced into the composition of plastics. At the same time, the required service life (induction period) of a plastic product is determined by the chemical nature of photodegradation activators and stabilizers and their ratio. [ ...]

In a stabilized electrolytic system, short-period pulsations of the electric potential of the microelectrode appear in a time dependence (Fig. 2.13), reaching (at an integration time constant of 0.5 s) -15% of its average value. This state is achieved due to a constant activation potential and avoiding the influence of external disturbing influences (minimal temperature variations; the absence of variable electric potential fields caused, for example, by human movement). The appearance of such pulsations takes place only in highly stable activated water after a sufficiently long activation time (several hours) and at low current potentials in the activator (up to -50 V). When water is stirred, such pulses of the microelectrode potential disappear.[ ...]

Annual plants from the Compositae family. The most common species are cocklebur, common and prickly. Not only do they clog wool heavily, but they are also dangerous weeds for row crops, especially in the south of the country. Due to the high sensitivity of cockleburs to the action of many herbicides, chemical agents are the most effective in combating them. Spraying can be carried out during the entire growing season, from the appearance of the first pair of large leaves until the formation of young immature inflorescences. For this purpose, sodium salt is used at a dose of 1 kg/ha of the active substance. The effect of this drug increases markedly when 5-10 kg/ha of ammonium nitrate is added as an activator. The dose of crumble and butyl ether ranges from 0.6 to 0.8 kg of active substance per 1 ha, and of amine salt - 1.5 kg/ha. If the cocklebur has been mowed down, and the overgrown aftermath is still so low that it is no longer possible to mow it, then crotilin at a dose of 1 kg / ha and ammonium sulfamate 150 kg / ha of the active substance are used to kill the weed. On cultivated crops (corn), cocklebur is easily destroyed by introducing atrazine into the soil at a dose of 2–4 kg/ha.[ ...]

The relationship between vitamin B12 and deoxyribose synthesis in Lactobacillus leich-manii cells was first established in 1949, when it was shown that one of the deoxyribonucleotides can replace vitamin B12, which is necessary for. growth of this organism. Reductase shows an absolute need for DBK-coenzyme and dihydrolipoate.[ ...]

The color of white, free of cadmium and lead, is pure white; when the white is heated, it turns yellow, and when the white is subsequently cooled, it becomes white again. Zinc white does not dissolve in water; dissolve in acids and alkalis. The advantage of zinc white over lead is their harmlessness and insensitivity to hydrogen sulfide. However, the idea of ​​​​the complete harmlessness of zinc white should be considered exaggerated, since under the action of acidic gastric juice they form soluble salts that are not completely indifferent to the human body. The disadvantage of zinc white is that paints containing zinc white are less resistant to weathering than paints with white lead. On a number of pigments (zinc crown, lead crown, yellow cadmium, ultramarine, etc.), zinc white acts catalytically, causing a change in their color. Zinc white is widely used in the paint and varnish industry for the production of grated oil and enamel paints. A large consumer of zinc white is the rubber industry, which uses zinc white as an activator in the vulcanization of rubber. In addition, zinc white is used in the pharmaceutical industry, as an integral part of the mass for match heads and in a number of other industries.[ ...]

Of particular importance is the pollution of the biosphere by a group of pollutants, collectively called "heavy metals" (HMs). These include more than 40 chemical elements of the periodic system of D.I. Mendeleev with atomic masses over 50 a.u. e. m. Sometimes heavy metals are called elements that have a density of more than 7-8 thousand kg / m3 (except for noble and rare ones). Both definitions are conditional and the lists of heavy metals according to these formal features do not match. And although the term "heavy metals" is unfortunate, it has to be used, since it has firmly entered the environmental literature. The group of elements designated HM is actively involved in biological processes, many of them are part of enzymes. The set of heavy metals largely coincides with the list of "trace elements". Trace elements include chemical elements that are obligate (mandatory) for plant and living organisms (according to A.P. Vinogradov), the content of which is measured by values ​​of the order of n ■ 10 2 - n ■ 10 5%. They are also called “trace”, “small”, “rare”, “scattered” (V.I. Vernadsky, F. Clark, V. Goldshmidt, A.E. Fersman). Most microelements perform the functions of initiators and activators of biochemical processes in living organisms. The number of microelements includes many non-metals.[ ...]

For many years I suffered from a crunch of the jaw joint. maxillofacial surgeons either shrugged their shoulders, or sarcastically remarked that half of the people live with this and nothing. and only then did the gnatologist turn out to help, and after 3 months my jaw stopped cracking. of course, there is still a long way to correct the bite in three years so that the crunch does not return, but the problem itself is gone.
