Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
1 Eliminate a carboxylic acid group from (an organic compound)‘heating at 100°C in dryness decarboxylates the proteins to yield glutamic acid’
- ‘Coproporphyrinogen III is transported to the interior of the mitochondrion, where 2 propionate residues are decarboxylated, yielding vinyl substituents on the 2 pyrrole rings.’
- ‘Malate formed by PEPC can either be used in the citric acid cycle or it can be decarboxylated to provide pyruvate and subsequently acetyl-CoA.’
- ‘In this compartment, called the matrix, the pyruvic acid is decarboxylated to a two-carbon acetyl group, releasing a CO 2 molecule, and is enzymatically joined to Coenzyme A, a large carrier molecule.’
- ‘Thus, malate produced following PEP carboxylation is readily decarboxylated and the CO 2 released.’
- ‘Pyruvate is first decarboxylated to produce acetaldehyde and carbon dioxide, catalyzed by pyruvate decarboxylase.’
- 1.1[no object]Undergo the process of decarboxylation.‘unstable carbamic acid decarboxylates to yield the amine’
- ‘After electron transfer the product decarboxylates resulting in a ketylbiradical III that has a life time of about 4 s, long enough to reduce oxygen to superoxide.’
