Table 3 Paclitaxel kinetic elimination Michaelis-Menten parameters (converted* from Vaclavikova et al., their Table 4 )

From: A physiologically-based flow network model for hepatic drug elimination I: regular lattice lobule model

Parameter Characteristic (SI) unit STARS unit
Maximum rate vmax 0.06 μM/min 1.08 × 10-9 molefrac/min
Half saturation constant Km 10.0 μM 1.8 × 10-7molfrac
Linear rate vmax/Km 6.0 × 10-3 min-1 6.0 × 10-3 min-1
  1. *Their Table 4 quotes vmax = 61 picomol/mg_protein/min. Using their microsomal protein concentration of 1 mg/ml, these numbers convert to vmax = 0.06 μM/min.
