3. Flexibility M A X C Shines in its Flexibility. The Program Includes the Following Attributes. 1. Three types of calculations (up to 6 chelators and 6 metals per calculation) can be performed: a. calculate total metals, given total chelators and free metal concentrations b. calculate free metals, given chelator and metal totals (internal checking of results) c. calculate the amount of chelator to add, given the free and total metals Free chelator and metal-chelator complex concentrations are shown for all three calculation types also 2.

If this behavior is considered undesirable, it may be avoided by using only fully Ca2+-saturated DM-nitrophen, for which rebinding to unphotolyzed chelator is impossible. Thus, the kinetic complexity of DM-nitrophen can be turned to experimental advantage, increasing the flexibility of control of [Ca2+]i. Diazo Compounds A. Chemical Properties In some experiments, being able to lower the [Ca2+Iirapidly, rather than raise it, is desirable. For this purpose, the caged calcium chelators were developed.

Nevertheless, every effort has been made to make MAXC as accurate as possible. Occasional errors in the code are still possible and improvements are suggested by users. Each user is encouraged to register for updates. EXE). 3. Flexibility M A X C Shines in its Flexibility. The Program Includes the Following Attributes. 1.
