Enzyme Kinetics

The enzyme succinoxidase adds oxygen to succinate to give fumarate. The reaction follows Michaelis-Menton kinetics. The following rate data were determined for a solution in which the enzyme concentration is 10.0 uM: [S](mM) ----------------- 0.33 10.00 vo (uM s-1) at 20 C ----- 0.50 1.17

Reaction Kinetics

In aqueous solution, the reaction of A to form B has the following rate expression: -d[A]/dt = k[A]{1 + k'[H+]} From the pH dependence of the reaction, k' was found to be 1.0 x 10e5 M-1. In a pH 4.0 buffer, it took 5 min for a 0.30 M solution of A to react to give 0.15 M solution B. Calculate the value of k and g
