8.2.45.54 octave.dataset.Puromycin

Static Method: out = Puromycin ()

Reaction Velocity of an Enzymatic Reaction

Description

Reaction velocity versus substrate concentration in an enzymatic reaction involving untreated cells or cells treated with Puromycin.

Format

state

Whether the cell was treated.

conc

Substrate concentrations (ppm).

rate

Instantaneous reaction rates (counts/min/min).

Details

Data on the velocity of an enzymatic reaction were obtained by Treloar (1974). The number of counts per minute of radioactive product from the reaction was measured as a function of substrate concentration in parts per million (ppm) and from these counts the initial rate (or velocity) of the reaction was calculated (counts/min/min). The experiment was conducted once with the enzyme treated with Puromycin, and once with the enzyme untreated.

Source

The data are given in Box & Jenkins (1976). Obtained from the Time Series Data Library at http://www-personal.buseco.monash.edu.au/~hyndman/TSDL/.
