Example sentences for: dcip

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

  • The respiratory electron-accepting dyes DCIP and XTT were used to "short-circuit" microbial electron transport, and this was observed (dye reduction) by visible spectroscopy.

  • 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.

  • 0 mL of sterile 100 mM phosphate buffer (pH 7.5), 2 mL of 100X Nutrient Broth as a biological reductant (Difco), and 1.0 mL of 1 mM DCIP to a sterile 25 mL serum bottle.

  • Figure 3shows results of measurement of DCIP reduction in an autoclaved control soil and an extraterrestrial surrogate soil (Idaho red sand).

  • 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.
