The basic Hill equation [1] provides a method to express the rate of formation of a product, P, from a substrate, S, through catalysis by an allosteric enzyme, E.
A major attraction of the Hill equation is its ability to describe quantitatively the behavior of reactions with complex mechanisms that are not known accurately.
The absence of a mechanistic foundation also limits the applicability of the irreversible Hill equation.
reversible Hill equation is the limiting form of Eq.
For the reversible Hill equation, these are the (dimensionless) concentrations of the substrate ([sigma]) , the product ([pi]) and the moderator ([zeta]).
The reversible Hill equation is widely used to model the kinetics of biochemical reaction networks with allosteric inhibitors and/or activators.
In general, the response coefficients were relatively larger at low concentrations, suggesting that the inapplicability of the deterministic reversible Hill equation under extreme conditions becomes stronger in the presence of noise.
Ironically, however, these difficulties do not seriously undermine the usefulness of the reversible Hill equation, possibly because of its weak reliance on mechanistic information.
