Would you help me with the following question?
An enzyme catalyzes a reaction at a velocity of 20 umol/min when the concentration of substrate (S) is 0.01 M. The Km for this substrate is 1 x 10-5 M. Assuming that Michaelis-Menten kinetics are followed, what will be the reaction velocity when the concentration of S is a) 1 x 10-5 M and b) 1 x 10-6 M.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 1:15 am ad1c9bdddf
The MM equation is:
V0 = (Vmax.[S])/(Km + [S])
First we have to find the Vmax, that means no matter what the ...
This solution helps with questions about enzymes and reaction catalysis.
