These results can be used to produce a Lineweaver-Burk plot, from which Km and Vmax can be obtained indirectly. These kinetic parameters can therefore be used to distinguish between the various isoenzymes of alkaline phosphatase because they show different sensitivities to inhibitors and heat2. The value of Km is a measure of the affinity of an enzyme for its substance. This, in combination with Vmax, which represents the maximum velocity of the rate of reaction, can be used to identify between isoenzymes as each isoenzyme displays different kinetic characteristics.

Comparing the dissolution of tablets and capsules. The purpose of this experiment is to test the dissolution of previously prepared capsules containing different paracetamol formulations, and commercial formulations, in order to highlight the difference
The purpose of this experiment is to test the dissolution of previously prepared capsules containing different paracetamol formulations, and commercial formulations, in order to highlight the differences between the formulations, including dosage form, excipients used, and prizes of brands and therefore quality, that may influence dissolution rate. . METHOD CONSTRUCTION OF CALIBRATION CURVE Dilutions of paracetamol stock solution (100mg/L) were carried out resulting in concentrations of 5 mg/L,10 mg/L,20mg/L, 25 mg/L,30 mg/L, and 40 mg/L. Absorbance of each solution was measured at 249nm using a UV spectrophotometer.

The neurotransmitters in our brain include amino acids, monoamines, peptides and acetylcholine, some of these neurotransmitters are known to be excitatory (glutamate) while some are known to be inhibitory (GABA) and some are known to depend on their receptor in order to determine if the transmitter is inhibitory or excitatory (dopamine) neurotransmitter4. Structure of a typical NEURON 5 A basic neuron contains the cell body, which is the main part of the neuron as it contains all the necessary parts of the cell i.e.

Relevance of the blood tests Calcium Serum calcium is important for muscle contractility, cardiac function, blood clotting and neural transmission. The total calcium in the blood can be measured to determine parathyroid function and calcium metabolism. The normal levels of serum calcium is between 2.25-2.75 mmol/l. George's serum calcium is 3.24 mmol/l which is higher than the normal range. Increased levels of serum calcium (hypercalcemia) could be due to hyperparathyroidism. Another cause of hypercalcemia is malignancy, tumour metatasis (myeloma, lung and renal cell)

There the cells release essential dopamine neurotransmitters that help control movement and coordination (ADAM, 2011). Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson's disease and as yet no knowledge as to why people get the condition (Parkinson?s UK, 2011). Parkinson's doesn't directly cause people to die, but symptoms do get worse over time (Parkinson?s UK, 2011). Parkinson's doesn't directly cause people to die, but symptoms do worsen over time (Parkinson?s UK, 2011) which does have a contributory factor to mortality rates. Pharmocokinetics is a branch of pharmacology that is concerned with both the rates at which the drug is absorbed and eliminated and what influences the time the drug moves between one biological compartment and another (Hollinger, 2003).
