The object of this investigation was to determine a number of
physical constants for the crystals of two commonly used insecticide
compounds. The compounds chosen were Aldrin and Dieldrin,
which are chlorinated cyclodiene compounds. These compounds are
in considerable use today, and show promise of heavy continued use.
The induction of drug-metabolizing enzymes is a
complex biochemical process manifested not only by
increases in various cytochrome P-450 isozymes and
related activities, but also by alterations in
endoplasmic reticulum membranes. Little work has been
done to examine how cytochrome P-450 inducing agents
influence other cellular processes, such as
High hydrostatic pressure processing (HPP) is a nonthermal process in which
foods are subjected to pressures in the range of 100-700 MPa at room temperatures or
higher. HPP is effective in reducing microbial counts and enzyme activity. The
ability of HPP to modify the functional properties of proteins has become...
