Enzyme Kinetics Enzymes are protein catalysts that, like all catalysts, speed up the rate of a chemical reaction without being used up in the process. They achieve their effect by temporarily binding to the substrate and, in doing so, lowering the activation energy needed to convert it to a product.

The rate at which an enzyme works is influenced by several factors, e. The concentration of substrate is designated [S] and is expressed in units of molarity. As the temperature rises, molecular motion — and hence collisions between enzyme and substrate — speed up. But as enzymes are proteins, there is an upper limit beyond which the enzyme becomes denatured and ineffective.

The conformation of a protein is influenced by pH and as enzyme activity is crucially dependent on its conformation, its activity is likewise affected. The study of the rate at which an enzyme works is called enzyme kinetics. Let us examine enzyme kinetics as a function of the concentration of substrate available to the enzyme.

We set up a series of tubes containing graded concentrations of substrate, [S]. At time zero, we add a fixed amount of the enzyme preparation. Over the next few minutes, we measure the concentration of product formed. If the product absorbs light, we can easily do this in a spectrophotometer. Early in the run, when the amount of substrate is in substantial excess to the amount of enzyme, the rate we observe is the initial velocity of Vi.

Plotting Vi as a function of [S], we find that At low values of [S], the initial velocity,Vi, rises almost linearly with increasing [S]. But as [S] increases, the gains in Vi level off forming a rectangular hyperbola. The asymptote represents the maximum velocity of the reaction, designated Vmax The substrate concentration that produces a Vi that is one-half of Vmax is designated the Michaelis-Menten constant, Km named after the scientists who developed the study of enzyme kinetics.

Km is roughly an inverse measure of the affinity or strength of binding between the enzyme and its substrate. The lower the Km, the greater the affinity so the lower the concentration of substrate needed to achieve a given rate. Plotting the reciprocals of the same data points yields a "double-reciprocal" or Lineweaver-Burk plot.

This provides a more precise way to determine Vmax and Km. Note that the magnitude represented by the data points in this plot decrease from lower left to upper right. Km equals Vmax times the slope of line.

This is easily determined from the intercept on the X axis.
