Operational models of allosteric modulation : caution is needed

Abstract: The operational model of allosteric modulation and allosteric agonism [1–5] is being used routinely to assess the functional effects of allosteric modulators. Because the meaning of parameters and concepts often loses precision after extensive use, it may be timely to revise some particularities of the model to preclude possible misinterpretations. To do so, I will use the equation for the model as expressed in [4]:where Em is the maximum effect of the system; n, a parameter related with the slope of the curves; [A] and [B], the concentrations of the agonist A and the allosteric modulator B, respectively; τA and τB, the operational efficacies of A and B, respectively; KA and KB, the dissociation constants of A and B, respectively; and α and β, the cooperativity parameters governing binding and function, respectively.
