Enzyme Kinetics

Enzyme Kinetics (Michaelis Menten/Lineweaver Burke/Eadie-Hostee)

QuestionAnswer
What is the Michaelis Menten equation? v=Vmax [S] / [S] + Km
Define Vmax. The rate of the reaction at saturation substrate concentrations for a given amount of enzyme.
The rate of the reaction at saturation substrate concentrations for a given amount of enzyme defines what concept? Vmax
Define Km. The substrate concentration that results in 50% Vmax.
The substrate concentration that results in 50% Vmax defines what? Km
An inhibitor that binds to the active site and competes with the substrate for its occupation is called a _________ inhibitor. Competitive inhibitor
An inhibitor that binds to, and takes an enzyme out of commission is called a ____________ inhibitor. Noncompetitive inhibitor
Competitive inhibitors ____________ (increase / decrease) the apparent Km. Increase
In a Lineweaver Burke plot, a competitive inhibitor will have _______________ (same / different) point on the x axis. Different
In a Lineweaver Burke plot, a noncompetitive inhibitor will have _______________ (same / different) point on the x axis. Same
In a Lineweaver Burke plot, a competitive inhibitor will have _______________ (same / different) point on the y axis. Same
In a Lineweaver Burke plot, a noncompetitive inhibitor will have _______________ (same / different) point on the y axis. Different
This type of inhibitor binds to the active site and is acted upon by the enzyme just as if it was a normal substrate. The enzyme uses its own catalytic machinery to inactivate itself. Suicide inhibitor
Fluorouracil is what type of inhibitor? Suicide inhibitor
The Y axis on the Lineweaver Burke plot indicates ___________. 1/Vmax
The X axis on the Lineweaver Burke plot indicates ____________. -1/Km
The Y axis on the Eadie-Hofstee plot indicates _________. Vmax
The X axis on the Eadie-Hofstee plot indicates _________. Vmax/Km
The slope of the Eadie-Hofstee plot indicates __________. -Km
True or False: Both competitive and noncompetitive inhibition is reversible. True
True or False: Both competitive and noncompetitive inhibition is irreversible. False

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
