keto group (C=O):
a carbonyl group covalently bond to two alkyl radicals;
the reactive group characteristic of ketones. Keto groups can redox cycle
but do so poorly unless they are conjugated with another redox active
group such as an ethylene bridge, another keto group, an imine, or an
an organic compound composed of a carbonyl group which
is bound to two alkyl groups.
immunoactive cells capable of lethal attack against certain
pathogens or tumors. Killer cells actively synthesize strong oxidants
to destroy their targets.
a phosphorylase. An enzyme which utilizes ATP or GTP to attach a
phosphoryl group to another molecule. Kinases phosphorylate numerous
substrates such as creatine, the tyrosine residues of certain proteins,
sugars, glycerol, etc.
a health care program developed by William F. Koch which
includes three components, namely: detoxification, oxygenation, and
catalyst administration. Detoxification required strict avoidance of
xenobiotics including certain foods, and colon detoxification. The
catalysts used were small organic compounds of neutral charge and
possessing two or more conjugated carbonyl groups. These were diluted
homeopathically in purified water to the 6X to 12X level and injected.
When effective the program induced remissions of allergies, infections,
the tricarboxylic acid cycle. A series of complex
rearrangements of certain carboxylic acids producing NADH and carbon
dioxide. The cycle can be fueled by any of its member acids or by the
introduction of pyruvic acid or acetyl-CoA.
