Supplementary Material

Supplementary material 1 gives description of the reduction of the model of elementary processes to differential equations for new variables and derivation of rate equations.

Supplementary material 2 contains expressions which have been used to decrease number of parameters: ratios of detailed balance, assumptions about equal parameter values.

In the Supplementary material 3 expressions for pH-dependence for different parameters are given.

Supplementary material 4 consists of figures which illustrate the goodness of fit and which were not added to the main text.

Supplementary material 5 contains table with values for both fitted parameter and parameters calculated through them using ratios of detailed balance.
