The initial rates of phosphorylation of glucose catalysed by glucokinase from Bacillus stearothermophilus were measured over a wide range of glucose, MgATP2-, MgADP- and glucose 6-phosphate concentrations. The results of the effects of the inhibitors on the initial rates suggest that the reaction mechanism is essentially the ordered Bi Bi, in which glucose(More)
A computer program is developed for the derivation of the rate equation for enzyme reactions on the basis of the pseudo-steady-state assumption and the combination of the pseudo-steady-state and the rapid-equilibrium assumptions. The program not only has an easy input method, but also can obtain a complete rate equation in itself on only one run. The(More)
This paper investigates impressions of approach motions of a mobile robot based on psychophysiological analysis. In one of our previous studies, we suggested that actuation noise caused by the robots tended to raise the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) response of heart rate variability. In another experiment it was observed that blocking out either the(More)
This paper addresses the issue of investigating the relationship between skin potential response (SPR) and robot motion from the aspect of auditory and visual modalities. The motion of the robotic devices primarily gave stimulus to the human through the auditory and visual modalities. Our previous work indicated that actuation noise caused from the robots(More)
This paper investigates impressions on the robot motion based on EDA experiments, deduces a motion rule for human-friendly robots from the investigations, and applies it to a mobile robot experimental apparatus. In our previous work, it was suggested that actuation noise come from the robots tended to raise the sympathetic nerve system (SNS) response of the(More)
For a reversible one-substrate reaction system that follows the Haldane reaction mechanism, a new and effective method has been proposed to extract true or intrinsic kinetic parameters of immobilized enzymes from diffusion limited rate data. The method utilizes the effectiveness factors correlated in terms of the general modulus defined by Aris and(More)
Computer simulation analysis of the experimental data showed that Cl'-keto PH4 and C2'-keto PH4 were sequential intermediates of the reduction of PPH4 to BH4 by SPR and that the reaction in the last step of the BH4 biosynthesis proceeds as follows: PPH4-->Cl'-keto PH4-->C2'-keto PH4-->BH4 Cl'-keto PH4 is not detectable in the reduction of PPH4 by the(More)
