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)
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 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)
Enzymatic synthesis of glucose 6-phosphate from glucose and ATP catalyzed by glucokinase from B. stearothermophilus and enzymatic regeneration of ATP from ADP and acetyl phosphate catalyzed by acetatekinase from B. stearothermophilus were simultaneously performed in an Ultrafiltration hollow-fiber reactor of the multitubular heat-exchanger type.(More)
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)
