Acetaldehyde forms a trimer in the presence of acid catalysts such as sulphuric or phosphoric acid, to make paraldehyde, a pharmacological sedative.
However, this group from Princeton actually make a trimer!
There are two forms of acetone peroxide: A dimer and a trimer.
In addition, Diskin says, the team would like to try to resolve the structure of a gp120 trimer-a more complex, three-pronged version of the protein.
The FMO is a trimer of proteins, each of which contains seven bacteriochlorophyll-a molecules.
In addition to the IsiA-PSI supercomplexes (F5 and the PSI trimer fraction F3), we observed a fraction (F4) with a density higher than that of the PSI trimer fraction (F3).
We assigned the F3, F4, and F5 of the long-term iron stressed samples as the IsiA-PSI trimer, IsiA-PSI-PSII supercomplex, and
The IsiA proteins in F2 are likely to be IsiA aggregates, because the association of PSI or PSII with IsiA will increase the density of the protein complexes as in the case of the IsiA-PSI trimer complexes.
IsiA-PSI supercomplex (heavier in density than IsiA-PSI trimer), respectively.
The IsiA-PSI trimer supercomplex might dissipate the excess light energy
