Skeletal muscles are composed of special cells, the muscle fibers, which ‑ on the basis of a coupled reaction
‑ can generate mechanical energy that is transferred to surroundings as work.
Which of the following redox coupled reactions
are thermodynamically feasible as written?
A condition for quantifying PPIase activities from time courses of coupled reactions by applying the first-order rate law is a relation between substrate concentration [S] and Michaelis constant (KM) of [S] << [K.sub.M].
To consider the influence of the proteolytic peptidylprolyl fragment, which is produced in large amounts in the fast phase of the coupled reaction, we investigated the influence of succinyl-Ala-Ala-Pro-Phe-OH on the PPIase activity of a mixture of 10 sera and in a separate experiment with purified Cyp18 and FKBP12.
Students learn a defined part of Mathematica and then make use of it to derive and graph mathematical relationships as well as to illustrate biological phenomena like cooperativity in the binding of repressor molecules to DNA and the "avalanche" of coupled reactions
that make up the blood-clotting cascade.
