Hypochlorous acid generated by myeloperoxidase modifies adjacent tryptophan and glycine residues in the catalytic domain of matrix metalloproteinase-7 (matrilysin): an oxidative mechanism for restraining proteolytic activity during inflammation.
In comparison to the in-line method, the off-line method, in which hypochlorous acid is generated outside and injected into the main ballast water pipe, requires pre-treatment filters to remove large organisms (50micro-m or larger), and it is necessary to clean or replace these filters.
This may be explained by the fact that, the production rate of chlorine/hypochlorous acid is constant and the increased amount of dye may require to increase the concentration of hypochlorous acid.
Allowing and/or facilitating the oxidation of the target metals by the hypochlorous acid, thereby decreasing the pH such that the predominant chlorine-based oxidizing species becomes chlorine;
We also investigated how the cellular effects of BT were modified by hydrogen peroxide (H202) scavenger catalase, hypochlorous acid (HOCl) scavenger methionine, and 4-aminobenzoic acid hydrazide (ABAH), a myeloperoxidase (MPO)-specific inhibitor.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) is considered an oxidizer (the active sanitizing agent) that can neutralize harmful germs, bacteria, and pathogens, as well as react with polyethylene pipe.
Thus, the acidic portion of the EO water is comprised of hypochlorous acid and is produced at the anode, hence the name anolyte.
After hypochlorous acid (HOCl) diffuses through the FCL sensor's membrane, it is electrochemically reduced, releasing electrons and creating a current flow proportional to the free chlorine concentration in the medium outside the sensor.
The company claims that the "magic water" - a form of hypochlorous acid - has been proven to kill 99.
and hypochlorous acid (HClO), which will inhibit biofouling.
Sanyo's electrolysed water technology, works by electrolysing tap water containing chloride ions to generate and maintain a high concentration of hypochlorous acid and hydroxyl radicals, which are two different types of active oxygen species that destroy the spikes (viral protein) on the surface of viruses, effectively preventing infection.
