Homework #2 Due October 20 at 5pm Name_____________________________ 1. Draw and label a reaction coordinate diagram for an uncatalyzed reaction, S P, and the same reaction catalyzed by an enzyme, E. 2. The difference in (standard) free energy content, G' °, between substrate S and product P may vary considerably among different reactions. What is the significance of these differences? 3. Michaelis-Menten kinetics is sometimes referred to as “saturation” kinetics. Why? 4. Write out the equation that describes the mechanism for enzyme action used as a model by 1

Michaelis and Menten. List the important assumptions used by Michaelis and Menten to derive a rate equation for this reaction. 5. An enzyme catalyzes a reaction at a velocity of 20 μ mol/min when the concentration of substrate (S) is 0.01 M. The K m for this substrate is 1 × 10 -5 M. Assuming that Michaelis- Menten kinetics are followed, what will the reaction velocity be when the concentration of S is (a) 1 × 10 -5
