SSystem | Reference Home |

SSystem is an uninstantiated function used to indicate parameter values for S-System based reactions.

The basic template for an S-System reaction is:

For example,

All parameters must be specified; there are not default parameters or short forms for this reaction.

Reactions are combined as regulatory reactions so that the following three forms are equivalent:
