Questions 1-3 are worth 5 points each. Questions 1 and 2 refer to the information below: Glucose transport across the red blood cell membranes (erythrocyte membrane) is a well- studied transport system. In one laboratory project, the glucose transport data in the table below were plotted as shown. The kinetics of glucose transport through the membrane follows this form of the Michaelis-Menten equation: V = V max [glucose] outside K t + [glucose] outside K t = transport constant [Glucose] outside (mM) Rate of Glucose Entry (mM/min) 0.5 0.012 1.0 0.019 2.0 0.027 3.0 0.032 4.0 0.035 5.0 0.035 1) From the data above, estimate the value for V max a) 0.070 b) 0.016 c) 0.026 d) 0.036 e) 0.046 This is where V goes to at large values of [Glucose]. Answer: d 2) From the data above, estimate the value for the transport constant K t : a) 0.8 b) 0.4 c) 1.6 d) 4.0 e) 0.02 This is the value of [Glucose] at V = .5 V max . Answer: a
