As a substrate, acyclo-GTP is incorporated into viral DNA, resulting in premature chain termination.
Its monophosphate form also incorporates into the viral DNA, resulting in chain termination.
Due to their structure they have less premature chain termination and branching.
This work led to the elucidation of the stop codons in the genetic code and the mechanism of chain termination during protein synthesis.
The thioesterase (TE) domain catalyzes chain termination and release of the mature lipopeptide.
Before autoacceleration, chain termination by combination of two free radical chains is a very rapid reaction that occurs at very high frequency (about one in 10 collisions).
Puromycin is an aminonucleoside antibiotic, derived from the Streptomyces alboniger bacterium, that causes premature chain termination during translation taking place in the ribosome.
Taking the polymerization of ethylene as an example, the free radical mechanism can be divided into three stages: chain initiation, chain propagation, and chain termination.
Like all addition polymerizations, it takes place in three steps: chain initiation, chain propagation, and chain termination.
This final weight is determined by the rate of propagation compared to the rate of individual chain termination, which includes both chain transfer and chain termination steps.
