Example sentences for: dcip

How can you use “dcip” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • A select group of signature chemicals were extracted from an organic-poor soil (Figure 1) and identified with instruments that eventually can be miniaturized for use on space exploration missions [ 13 21 22 ] . Actual electron transport by living cells was confirmed by use of two specific dyes (DCIP and XTT) that short-circuit respiratory electron transport chains.

  • DCIP, for example, couples directly with NADH or NADPH to form DCIPH 2 and NAD +or NADP +, making it an ideal electron transport chain indicator [ 15 ] . XTT has been used to measure microbial respiratory activity in complex natural environments [ 16 ] . Respiratory dyes have been used commercially for many years in the Biolog™ system to help identify pure cultures of microorganisms by their patterns of oxidation of multiple organic substrates [ 17 ] . Biolog™ also has been used to characterize oxidation capabilities of soil microbial communities [ 18 ] . Rodriquez, et al.

  • Since DCIP and XTT have different redox potentials, and XTT in our work appears to generally be more easily reduced by soil microbial communities, this shows a need to use more than one respiratory dye in this type of experiment.

  • In the Viking's gas exchange experiment, water vapor exposed to the Martian soil released O 2 , but possibly only as a result of the activity of powerful soil oxidants that also might have been responsible for the chemical reactivity seen in other Viking biology experiments [ 20 ] . A molecule such as DCIP or XTT might be destroyed by oxidation in the presence of such soils.

  • DCIP and XTT reduction assays
