In the last lecture we derived the Michaelis-Menten equation that describes the hyperbolic curve we get by plotting initial velocity (v o ) as a function of [S]: v = V max [S] K M + S Can use this equation to calculate points on the curve. V max and K M When the [S] >> K M (Greater than 100 x K M ): The K M is small and drops out and the equation becomes v = V max P O Get Zero order kinetics in which the rate of reaction is independent of [S]. When the [S] << K M (Less than .01 x K M ): v = V max [S] K M = k [S] Get First order kinetics in which the velocity is directly proportional to the [S] and the line is straight. If v = ½ the V max the K M = [S] Thus the K M is equal to the substrate concentration at which the reaction rate is half its maximal value.
