Learning outcomes of the lecture…. - Demonstrate an understanding of the kinetics of enzyme- catalyzed reactions. - Explain the “lock and key” and “induced fit” model of enzymatic action. - Demonstrate an understanding of the mechanism of enzyme action. - Understand the Michaelis-Menten equation and ability to apply the Michaelis-Menten equation to the analysis of enzyme kinetics. - Explain the different phases of cell growth.

Enzymes They are produced only by living organisms and commercial enzymes are generally produced by bacteria. Most of enzymes are high-molecular weight proteins or protein-like substances that acts on a substrate (reactant molecule) to transform it chemically at a greatly accelerated rate, usually 10 3 to 10 17 times faster than the uncatalyzed rate. Enzymes are specific: one enzyme can usually catalyze only one type of reaction.

Enzymes They are present in small quantities in the reaction and are not consumed during the course of the reaction nor do they affect the chemical reaction equilibrium. Uncatalyzed reaction : S → P Catalyzed reaction : S + E E•S → E + P Catalytic activity is revealed by studying enzyme kinetics!

Activation Energy They provide an alternate pathway for the reaction to occur thereby requiring lower activation energy.
