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!

Very clear and succint lecture
By Catherine M. on 07. November 2017 for Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

Wow! Never thought I’d be amazed by the clarity and succintness of the discussion. Packs into a few minutes what would take a four hour lecture to discuss. Defintely recommended these lectures to my friends who are struggling with biochemistry and don’t want to use the books so much.

Clear, concise enough and interestingly explained
By Benjamin K. on 25. October 2017 for Catalysis Considerations – Enzyme Classification

It is very clearly and enthusiastically explained. You make Biochem easy to understand.

Great enzyme lectures
By VICTOR P. on 21. October 2017 for Irreversible Enzyme Inhibition: Suicide – Enzyme Inhibitors

As a medical student I found this series of lectures on enzymes extremely clarifying. Dr Ahern is a great lecturer. Thank you so much.

I understood perfectly the concepts the way he explained them
By Yainely V. on 26. September 2017 for Michaelis-Menten Kinetics: Considerations – Enzyme Classification

I understood perfectly the concepts the way he explained them. He makes it ease to grasp
