1. Which one of the following statements is true of enzyme catalysts? A) They bind to substrates, but are never covalently attached to substrate or product. B) They increase the equilibrium constant for a reaction, thus favoring product formation. C) They increase the stability of the product of a desired reaction by allowing ionizations, resonance, and isomerizations not normally available to substrates. D) They lower the activation energy for the conversion of substrate to product. E) To be effective they must be present at the same concentration as their substrates. 2. The steady state assumption, as applied to enzyme kinetics, implies: 3. An enzyme-catalyzed reaction was carried out with the substrate concentration initially a thousand times greater than the K m for that substrate. After 9 minutes, 1% of the substrate had been converted to product, and the amount of product formed in the reaction mixture was 12 μ mol. If, in a separate experiment, one-third as much enzyme and twice as much substrate had been combined, how long would it take for the same amount (12 μ mol) of product to be formed? A) 1.5 min B) 13.5 min C) 27 min D) 3 min E) 6 min 4. Which of these statements about enzyme-catalyzed reactions is false ? 5. To calculate the turnover number of an enzyme, you need to know: 6. What are the units for the Michaelis constant K M ? A) B) Time, in seconds or minutes C) Moles/liter

D) Moles/sec E) Moles/liter-sec F) Per second 7. Assume that the reaction velocity for an enzyme reaction is 15 μM/min when [S] = K M .
