This pancreatic metabolization pathway for ethanol includes ADH3, a saturable form of the ADH enzyme with low affinity and high Km for ethanol, cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP231), the expression of which is induced by the ethanol ingestion, and catalase.
Moreover, the tolerance of natural enemies may also be associated to higher metabolization rates of the compound and/or changes in the site of action of insecticides (FERNANDES et al.
The European precast concrete sector faces diverse needs for resource efficiency improvement (reduction in natural resource consumption and metabolization of waste materials, reduction in carbon footprint and embodied energy, design for reuse, increase in process efficiency and waste minimization, lighter solutions, enhanced thermal performance through novel cost-effective insulating materials).
A chemical can either increase or decrease the rate of metabolization of another chemical, and the majority of synergistic interactions can be explained by interactions on metabolism (Cedergreen, 2014).
It also has a very rapid metabolization profile, with an elimination half-life of 3-7 hours.
Boron is involved in many biochemical and metabolic functions such as cell wall growth, respiration, formation of meristematic tissues, regulation of metabolic pathways, metabolization of carbohydrate, RNA; and indole acetic acid [5, 6, 7, 8, 3, 2].
Jansson anticipates the application of knowledge about individuals' metabolization of microbiomes to personalized medicine--the tailoring of medical treatments to specific individuals.

Pheroid encapsulates, or entraps, the Phytofare in a colloidal emulsion which clinical tests have shown both improves absorption into the blood plasma and protects the Phytofare against metabolization during the digestive process, concluded the company.
Regular exercise increases the ability of skeletal muscles to extract oxygen and tissue metabolization, increases the coronary circulation and decreases the cardiac function.
The replacement of an oxygen atom in the organophosphorus structure by sulfur leads to the formation of organothiophosphorus compounds such as malathion and parathion, which have a lower lethal potential but in vivo metabolization to the oxon metabolite enhances their toxicity.
