This would explain why autodigestion takes place after oxidations cease.
The former effect raises the rate of oxidations in the egg, the latter does not.
In fact, the life of the tissues is dependent upon a continual succession of oxidations and deoxidations.
The steam undergoes a series of alternate reductions and oxidations, acting as a "carrier of oxygen" to the carbonic oxide.
Loeb and Wasteneys found that the hypertonic solution does not increase the rate of oxidations in a fertilized egg.
Next, it is known to us and is defined by the negative characteristics of resistance to hydrolytic actions and oxidations.
The study of these oxidations was then extended to typical unsaturated hydrocarbons—viz.
Both of these substances express the result of oxidations going on in the body.
