1 (#2 pg 238) Penicillin is hydrolyzed by penicillinase is some resistant bacteria. The mass of this enzyme is is 29.6 kd. The amount of penicillin hydrolyzed in 1 minute in a 10 ml solution containing 10 -9 g of purified penicillinase was measured as a function of the concentration of penicillin (measurements on next page) a) Plot V o vs [s] and 1/V o vs 1/[S] for these data.Does penicillinase obey Michaelis- Menten kinetics? If so, what is K m ? b) What is the value of V max ?

Lineweaver-Burk Y intercept = 1/Vmax = 1.46 =, therefore Vmax= 1/(1.46*10 9 ) = 6.84*10 10 X intercept = -1/Km = 1.46/7.6225, therefore Km= 5.2*10 -6
2 (#4 pg 238) The kinetics of an enzyme are measured as a function of substrate concentration in the presence and in the absence of 2mM inhibitor (I). (measurements on next page) a) What are the values of Vmax and Km in the absence and presence of the inhibitor? b) What type of inhibition is this?

#2 continued Y intercept = 1/Vmax = 0.0215, therefore Vmax = 46.5 umol/min Vmax is basically the same with and without inhibitor, therefore its competitive inhibition Km for without = 1.1 x 10 -5 Km for with = 3.1 x 10 -5
3. The first reaction in glycolysis that results in the formation of an energy- rich compound (i.e., a compound whose hydrolysis has a highly negative ΔG'°) is catalyzed by: a) glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
