Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

Don't let enzyme kinetics scare you. Study with Lecturio and learn what you need to know to pass your exams. We will teach you the principles of enzymes and enzyme kinetics in a logical, thoughtful way so that you understand the material at a deep level.

To start with, we will cover:

  • The effects of substrate and enzyme concentration
  • The effects of pH and temperature on enzyme activity
  • Inhibitors: competitive, non-competitive
  • Saturation, reaction rate
  • Michaelis-Menten kinetics
  • Lineweaver-Burk plot

... and this is just the beginning. Learn with high yield lectures with award winning lecturers from all around the world. We also provide focused, high-yield lecture reviews and quizzes to customize your learning environment. Study from your computer, tablet, or even your cell phone. Boost your test scores now!

Great biochem professor
By Melissa T. on 17. December 2016 for Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

This is professor is really good at explaining concepts and is thorough with getting caught up in the details

Great explanation of steady state using a graph
By Alina B. on 23. November 2016 for Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics: Enzyme Catalysis

Thank you so much! The part at the end where the steady state was explained with a graph was especially useful.

A very clear understanding of the basic concepts was developed by Kevin. Good examples and perfect illustrations made everything so easy and interesting.

Excellent presentation
By bea v. on 16. November 2016 for Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

very clear Explanation; I managed to understand mechanism for each type of Ihnibitors thus I can now draw the lineweaver plots.
