  • a Data were fitted to the following exponential function: inhibition (%) = 1 − ek × C, applying the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm (Origin 9.0; OriginLab, MA), where A is the variable coefficient given in Table 2 and C is the oxygen concentration.

  • b O2 concentration at which 50% inhibition was obtained. Standard errors are in parentheses.
