In competitive binding assays, the logit-log dose relationship, in which the response is defined by: R = logit y = log 10 ( y 1 − y ) where y = b b 0 with b = fraction of tracer bound and b 0 = value of b with no unlabelled ligand in the system. Logit transformed assay data frequently yield straight-line dose-response curves, amenable to statistical analysis.
