Hi Rui,

Thanks for your input.

In my analysis, the MM model is not intended to fit continuous data but must be used within a logistic regression model of binary data. So, while useful in itself, the suggested example does not exactly apply.

I appreciate your time

glm might not be the right tool for the MM model but nls is meant to fit
non-linear models.
And, after an on-line search, there is also package drc, function drm.

I will use the data and examples in the links below. (The second gave me
right, it uses nls.)


#--- data

# substrate
S <- c(0,1,2,5,8,12,30,50)

# reaction rate
v <- c(0,11.1,25.4,44.8,54.5,58.2,72.0,60.1)
kinData <- data.frame(S, v)

#--- package drc fit

# use the two parameter MM model (MM.2)
drm_fit <- drm(v ~ S, data = kinData, fct = MM.2())

#--- nls fit
MMcurve <- formula(v ~ Vmax*S/(Km + S))
nls_fit <- nls(MMcurve, kinData, start = list(Vmax = 50, Km = 2))


#--- plot

SconcRange <- seq(0, 50, 0.1)
nls_Line <- predict(nls_fit, list(S = SconcRange))

plot(drm_fit, log = '', pch = 17, col = "red", main = "Fitted MM curve")
lines(SconcRange, nls_Line, col = "blue", lty = "dotted")


Hope this helps,

Rui Barradas
