On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Puromycin data set which pertains to Reaction Velocity of an Enzymatic Reaction. The Puromycin data set is found in the datasets R package. Try to load the Puromycin data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Puromycin"). This may load the data into a variable called Puromycin. If R says the Puromycin data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("datasets") and then attempt to reload the data with library("datasets") followed by data("Puromycin"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing Puromycin at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the Puromycin R data set. The size of this file is about 470 bytes.
Reaction Velocity of an Enzymatic Reaction
Puromycin data frame has 23 rows and 3 columns of the
reaction velocity versus substrate concentration in an enzymatic
reaction involving untreated cells or cells treated with Puromycin.
This data frame contains the following columns:
a numeric vector of substrate concentrations (ppm)
a numeric vector of instantaneous reaction rates (counts/min/min)
a factor with levels
Data on the velocity of an enzymatic reaction were obtained
by Treloar (1974). The number of counts per minute of radioactive
product from the reaction was measured as a function of substrate
concentration in parts per million (ppm) and from these counts the
initial rate (or velocity) of the reaction was calculated
(counts/min/min). The experiment was conducted once with the enzyme
treated with Puromycin, and once with the enzyme untreated.
