Example sentences for: acceptors

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

  • Escherichia coli like many enteric and soil bacteria can respire anaerobically by using a variety of amine-N-oxides and methyl-sulfoxides as electron acceptors.

  • Further validation efforts may show that observation of redox cycling of artificial electron acceptors of appropriate redox potentials may be sufficient in itself as a signature of life, greatly simplifying instrumentation requirements for extraterrestrial missions in our solar system and beyond.

  • The method involves detection of actual activity of respiratory electron transport using artificial electron acceptors such as DCIP and tetrazolium dyes such as XTT.

  • Thus, our ability, confirmed here, to detect actual electron transport within the redox potential range of life processes, and to observe simultaneously some of the signature chemical structures involved, offers a promising direct approach to detecting the capability of living entities in soil on Earth or elsewhere in our solar system to move electrons between universal donors and acceptors and obtain energy to support replication.

  • In terrestrial biological systems, energy is tapped via stepwise electron transport between electron donors and acceptors via an electron transport chain . Applying this principle universally, we should be able to detect the chemical components of electron transport chains or electron transport itself as a signature of life.
