We describe a versatile computer program for least-squares fitting of ligand/receptor association and dissociation curves from several experiments simultaneously. The program is designed to handle any number of classes of binding sites reacting with a single ligand that may have two forms: labeled and unlabeled. For a single class of binding sites, the(More)
We have developed an optimal design strategy, i.e. a choice of times at which the magnetization should be measured, in spin-echo measurements, when the number of measurements is fixed in advance. Results are given for samples whose relaxation is described by either an exponential or biexponential decay curve. The analysis is based on having an initial(More)
SUMMARY The DOMIRE web server implements a novel, automatic, protein structural domain assignment procedure based on 3D substructures of the query protein which are also found within structures of a non-redundant protein database. These common 3D substructures are transformed into a co-occurrence matrix that offers a global view of the protein domain(More)
The single-turnover kinetics of the oxidation of cytochrome aa3 by O2 have been studied using a new approach. Up to 1000 whole spectra covering both the Soret and alpha regions were sequentially collected at room temperature from single samples with a time resolution of 10 microns. All of the spectral and time information were used in analyses based on(More)
Krab et al. (1984) have recently tried to resolve the long-standing controversy as to whether the mechanistic H+/O coupling ratio for electrons passing through sites II and III of the mammalian electron transport chain to O2 is 6 or 8. Using a mathematical model they concluded that the higher number reported by Costa et al. (1984) was an overestimate(More)
The problem of obtaining very early ratios for the H+/O stoichiometry accompanying succinate oxidation by rat liver mitochondria was attacked using new techniques for direct measurement rather than extrapolations based on data obtained after mixing and the recovery of the electrode from initial injection of O2. Respiration was quickly initiated in a(More)
Costa, L.E., Reynafarje, B. and Lehninger, A.L. [(1984) J. Biol. Chem. 259, 4802-4811] have reported 'second-generation' measurements of the H+/O ratio approaching 8.0 for vectorial H+ translocation coupled to succinate oxidation by rat liver mitochondria.
