As we promised not to give any quantitative estimation based on molecular ion mass peak intensity, we can only comment that these structures could be molecules that are preferably formed as (a) and (c), or are presumably stable diquinones like (b), which gave the third intensive mass peak (the structure marked as 2XZ trimeric qq) in the reaction mixture of 2,5-dimethylresorcinol together with resorcinol after the dimeric monoquinone marked as XZ dimeric rq and tetrameric monoquinone marked as 2X2Z tetrameric hq.
Due to obvious complications in explicit kinetic modelling of a cooperatively regulated bi-substrate reaction catalysed by tetrameric enzyme, the kinetic data were analysed proceeding from the rate equation for a non-cooperative bisubstrate random-order enzymatic reaction [14], where the reactive complex involves the enzyme, ADP, and PEP.
So they looked at polyhaemoglobin, saw that it maintained its tetrameric form and hence had a good half-life, but suffered because of its high oxygen affinity.

19-24) Indeed, as a result of attempts to disprove the warped zipper model researchers, including one of the inventors of the warped zipper itself, have discovered that DNA can exist not just in helices formed of antiparallel pairs of strands, but also as parallel strands, as right-handed or left-handed helices, and even as triplex and tetrameric complexes, all of which are thought to have fundamental regulatory properties within chromosomes.
