the main function of pectorals is to adduct the arms
Is it the oblique eye muscles or the superior or inferior recti that adduct the eye?
a stable, covalent adduct of enzyme and substrate DNA results
Then, isometrically contract the pectoral muscle, attempting to adduct the arm.
Any asymmetry in adduction , abduction, flexion, extension, external rotation, and internal rotation should be noted.
Abduction and adduction are best tested with the patient supine and the examiner providing resistance against the medial and lateral side of the knee.
Moreover, some photoactivable compounds can also produce bulky adducts .
In rat liver, it has been shown that tamoxifen forms covalent DNA adducts , implying a genotoxic mechanism for its carcinogenicity in this tissue.
The affected arm is flexed at the elbow and adducted against the side of the body.
Under these irradiation conditions, another major class of oxidative damage occurs, namely the formation of covalent protein-DNA adducts .
