Taking as starting point the complete analysis of mean residence times in linear compartmental systems performed by Garcia-Meseguer et al. (Bull. Math. Biol. 65:279-308, 2003) as well as the fact that enzyme systems, in which the interconversions between the different enzyme species involved are of first or pseudofirst order, act as linear compartmental(More)
In recent years, numerous epidemiological studies, which deal with the potential effects of mobile phone antennas on health, have almost exclusively focused on their distance to mobile phone base stations. Although it is known that this is not the best approach to the problem, this situation occurs due to the numerous difficulties when determining the(More)
Starting from a simple general reaction mechanism of activation of aspartic proteinases zymogens involving a uni- and a bimolecular simultaneous activation route and a reversible inhibition step, the time course equation of the zymogen, inhibitor and activated enzyme concentrations have been derived. Likewise, expressions for the time required for any(More)
The aim of this comment is to extend the study of the dynamics of a finite extensibility nonlinear oscillator conducted by Febbo [M. Febbo, A finite extensibility nonlinear oscillator, Applied Mathematics and Computation 217 (2011) 6464-6475]. We show that the linearized harmonic balance method is not sufficiently adequate for this oscillator and that the(More)
The time course of the residual enzyme activity of a general model consisting of an autocatalytic zymogen activation process inhibited by an irreversible competitive inhibitor and an irreversible uncompetitive inhibitor has been studied. Approached analytical expressions which furnish the time course of the residual enzyme activity from the onset of the(More)
Simultaneously with the increase of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF-EMF) in recent decades, there has been increasing concern about their potential relation with the etiology of several tumors. At this time, the techniques of spatial data analysis jointly with the study of the personal exposure to these fields offer a new approach to the problem.(More)
From the kinetic study carried out in part I of this series (preceding article) an analysis quantifying the relative contribution to the global process of the uni- and bimolecular routes has been carried out. This analysis suggests a way to predict the time course of the relative contribution as well as the effect on this relative weight of the initial(More)
