  • Actually, rather than immunizing you, they do just the opposite; they give you false hopes of protection and then slash away at you with enzymic knives.

  • Any increase in a limiting substrate concentration is going to promote enzymic activity it is simple Michaelis Menten kinetics- in this case carbon fixation, which, in turn, will lead to increased growth.

  • During this period I first heard about the enzyme, phosphorylase, which was crystallized by Arda Green and the Coris and was found to exist in two interconvertible forms that they referred to as phosphorylase b and phosphorylase a. Phosphorylase b required 5'-AMP for enzymic activity whereas phosphorylase a was active without this nucleotide.

  • Small quantities of additives are usually employed in the process, eg sodium sulphite and bisulphite to give 150-200 ppm in the product to retard oxidative changes during processing and non-enzymic browning during storage; antioxidants and emulsifying agents may be added to minimise oxidative changes during storage and to improve the texture of the reconstituted product respectively.
