Example sentences for: dcip

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

  • Though the Boney Basin soil readily reduced XTT, it only very slowly reduced DCIP (data not shown), and the rate of reduction was not significantly different between untreated soil and killed controls.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Concentrations of DCIP (oxidized) were calculated using a molar extinction coefficient of ε = 21.

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