__________________________________ Name 2 c. Kinetic studies have shown that nucleoside phosphorylases follow a random mechanism for both substrate binding and product release. Use the Cleland notation to show this pattern for the reaction shown below. ( 4 points ). d. Based on the kinetic mechanism in part c and your knowledge of carbohydrate mechanisms, use curved arrows to draw a mechanism for the enzyme-catalyzed conversion of the A nucleoside + P i to adenine and D-ribose-1-phosphate. You may use acid-base catalysis as needed. ( 8 points ).
