    Subcellular fractionation of rat liver resulted in the following samples:

    Fraction Speed (xg) Volume (ml) protein (mg/ml)

    P-1 2800 10 6

    Analysis of the fractions resulted in the following enzyme activities expressed as nmoles/min/ml of sample fraction.

    Fraction citrate synthase catalase phosphatase aldolase

    P-1 0.20 0.10 0.80 1.0

    Question #1= From the above results determine the relative specific activity (RSA) of each enzyme.
