 Abstract    N e w M o d e l S y s te m fo r th e S tu d y o f C o m p le x D y n a m ic a l E n z y m e R e a c tio n s . I. A N o n lin e a r E n z y m e R e a c tio n in a C h e m ic a l G r a d ie n t An experimental system for the study of biochemical reaction dynamics is introduced and de­ scribed. A one-enzyme reaction is extended by an artificial feedback loop in an electrochemical device. Cyclic voltammetry is used to show that the reaction rate depends nonlinearly on the amount of cosubstrate offered. For some sets of fixed parameter values a damped oscillatory approach of the steady state was observed. The usefulness of the systems theoretical concepts is discussed.

 Abstract    We investigate experimentally stationary stable states of activator (w) inhibitor (v) type systems corresponding to the reaction diffusion equation S ■ v = Av + w — v; w = a Aw + f(w) — v; S, a — const > 0 with / (w) monotonically increasing for small and decreasing for large |w|. We first describe some general mathematical properties and present qualitative results obtained from numerical calcula­ tions. We then investigate experimentally electrical networks described by the spatially discretized version of the above equation. Calculation and experiment are in good agreement. We also interprete a two dimensional-network as an equivalent circuit for a composite material consisting of a linear and a nonlinear layer with an s-shaped current density electric field characteristic. This model is used for a phenomenological description of spatial structures and global current voltage characteristics observed experimentally in pin-diode like and gas discharge devices. The model accounts very well for the experimental results obtained so far. It is concluded that the above equation and the corresponding experimental setup are of great interest for fundamental investigations of self con­ trolled processes in nature.
