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 tip of the iceberg! Learn using high-yield lectures from 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!

Why are enzyme vital? Drug paths and function
By eyob a. on 01. July 2021 for Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

Interesting. I have tries to learn this about 2-3 times but never quiet stuck in my mind. Too easy to forget why an enzyme does this or that, however Dr.Kevins way of sharing the WHY this is significant really helped conndct the dots.

really satisfied
