Mathematics of Hormone-Receptor Interaction

I. Basic Principles
  • D. Rodbard
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 36)


The basic principles underlying simple bimolecular reactions are reviewed. Alternative methods for estimation of rate constants and affinity constants are discussed. The need for weighting, iteration, and testing of alternative models is emphasized. Common problems and errors are discussed.
