Michaelis Menten Kinetics

Michaelis Menten Kinetics – Mechanism and Applications

Michaelis Menten kinetics is a model used to describe the rate of enzyme-catalyzed reactions. The model was developed by Leonor Michaelis and Maud Menten in 1913 and is still used today to explain how enzymes work. The model is based on enzymes binding to substrates to form an enzyme-substrate complex. The substrate then undergoes a chemical reaction, releasing the products from the complex. The Michaelis … Continue reading Michaelis Menten Kinetics – Mechanism and Applications
