Physics of Metabolic Oscillations

Pp. 142-169 (28)

Abstract

Individual enzyme reactions in isolation cannot display any periodic behavior, however they display this behavior when they are associated with other reactions. It is the system thus formed that displays such periodic behavior.

Keywords:
