Scatchard plot

Scat·chard plot

1. a graphic representation used in the analysis of binding phenomena in which the concentration of bound ligand divided by the concentration of free ligand is plotted against the concentration of bound ligand;
2. similar to (1), except the concentration of the bound ligand is on the vertical axis.

9728), and the values of Kd and qmax, calculated from the slope and intercept of Scatchard plots, are 62.
Rosenthal transformations were performed on radioligand binding data and plotted as Scatchard plots for illustration purposes only [23,25,26].
Rosenthal transformations of the data are presented as Scatchard plot for illustration (Figure 1B).
Figure 4b shows that the Scatchard plots were only a single straight line, which illustrated that there was only a class of binding sites populated in the nonimprinted microspheres.
But although Scatchard plots show that cadmium's affinity for the receptor is quite high (dissociation constant is [10.
Individual values of affinity and the coefficient of correlation for linearity of the Scatchard plots are shown in Table 1.
The curved Scatchard plots made it difficult to estimate precisely the affinity and yield of receptors from the solubilization step.
