Oxidating a plant
When leaves are irradiated by excess light energy, the chloroplasts that carry out photosynthesis can easily suffer oxidative stress and stop photosynthesizing.
Previously this team was the first to clarify the mechanism behind the production of reactive oxygen species.
It was in operation from 1952 through 1967, and processed approximately 24,000 tons of uranium fuel rods.
The operations at REDOX consolidated plutonium processing programs into one building and process, which had previously required multiple facilities and processes.
Subsequent studies, mainly from Stumpf’s laboratory, in principle established the existence of the ß-oxidation pathway in plant cells.

The down side surrounded the liquid waste generated by REDOX.
It was far less in volume than what was produced at T and B Plants, but the liquid waste from Reduction-Oxidation contained many more chemicals than earlier waste types and it was significantly hotter when it went into the tank farms.
A research team led by Associate Professor MIYAKE Chikahiro (Kobe University Graduate School of Agricultural Science) made this discovery, which was reported in 11 journals.The recycled uranium could be used again to make more fuel rods.Where T and B Plants could process only between 1 and 1.5 tons of uranium each day, REDOX could process up to 12 tons per day.When excess light energy is absorbed by plants during photosynthesis, harmful reactive oxygen species are produced.
These reactive oxygen species break down important structures such as proteins and membranes, preventing them from functioning properly.Your access to the NCBI website at gov has been temporarily blocked due to a possible misuse/abuse situation involving your site.
