  1. a Final concentration, the former value in the table was determined at 1 mM and the latter was determined at 10 mM. b Final concentration, the values in the table were determined at 1 mM (or 10 mM, the latter values), 0.05%, 0.05% and 0.1% for EDTA, Tween 60, Tris, and SDS, respectively. c ND: not determined. Values shown were the means of duplicate experiments, and the variations about the means were below 5%.
