The other three committees consist of a balance of KCAT artists and community members, and weekly meetings are held on a rotating basis at committee members' homes.
Board membership aside, the local community supports KCAT in other ways.
She added: "I think my mum would have been very touched that I've set up KCAT.
The turnover numbers (kcat) for glucose to fructose conversion for both unbound and immobilized mutants was greater than the wild- type enzyme.
The turnover numbers for glucose to fructose conversion for both unbound and immobilized CBD-TNXI were greater than the wild-type enzyme: kcat (min-1) was approximately 1000 3800 and 5800 at 80C compared to 1140 10350 and 7000 at 90C for the wild-type unbound and immobilized enzymes respectively.
"I want to have a reason to be happy like Kcat," reads this Facebook status from my friend Cecille.
The Kidney Check Australia Taskforce (KCAT - Kidney Health Australia) has developed a promotional poster which displays key points in the booklet and is available on the website.
The kinetic constants (Vmax, Km, kcat and kcat/Km) were determined using Lineweaver-Burk double reciprocal plot by assaying protease activity at a fixed enzyme concentration with varying concentrations of substrates 1-10 mg/ml at 37[degrees]C.
Vmax value of 0.485 U/ml for the maximum substrate concentration, kcat value of 3.23 [s.sup.-1] and kcat/Km value of 0.215 [s.sup.-1]/[micro]M was obtained.
