binary complex

bi·na·ry com·plex

a noncovalent complex of two molecules; often referring to the enzyme-substrate complex in an enzyme-catalyzed reaction. Compare: central complex, Michaelis complex.

Data indicate that cTnI circulates mainly as a binary complex with cTnC in the blood of patients with acute MI, but it also circulates as free cTnI and as a ternary complex, cTnICT.
The WG has also described a candidate reference procedure based on a multiplexed bead-based immunoassay and SDS-PAGE and claimed equimolar detection of free cTnI, the cTnIC binary complex, phosphorylated and dephosphorylated free cTnI, and the ternary cTnICT complex with or without heparin (13).

These reactions include the formation of a binary complex between the metal and mono-deprotonated ascorbic acid molecule, and dioxygen coordination by the bound metal.
The structure of the binary complex of the enzyme and glutathione indicates that the hydroxyl group of Tyr6 is located between 3.

The predominant form of cTnI in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients is the binary complex IC (8,11).
Here we report the immunoreactivity of five commonly used commercial cTnI immunoassays (Bayer AC5:180[R], Dade Stratus[R], Beckman Access[R], Behring OPUS[R], and Abbott AxSYM[R]) toward the two major forms of the analyte: free cTnI and its binary complex, IC.
The cTnI-cTnT binary complex (IT) is weak, with an association constant of 8.
In this study, we developed three two-site immunoassays that allowed us to identify the free form of cTnI as well as each complexed form: the binary complex IC, the binary complex IT, and the ternary complex cTnT-cTnI-TnC (TIC).
At the time these studies were performed, we did not have the binary complex of cTnI-C, thus we did not calibrate the column for this complex.
When these fractions were tested for cTnI (Opus Plus), only two peaks were evident, corresponding to the ternary complex and the binary complex of I-C (Fig.
