Unformatted text preview: key here is that the substrate is rate- limiting. So your graph should indicate a decrease in rate as a function of time. 7. From top to bottom: A, D, B, D, B, A, B or C, B 8. b. If α is greater than α’, then KI is less than K’I. Since KI = [E] [I]/[EI] and K’I = [ES] [I]/[ESI], more inhibitor is bound to E than ES. 9. a. Since the enzyme catalyzes the reaction at 0.5 times its maximal rate of catalysis when the substrate is present at 3.3 mM (given) then the Km is 3.3 mM. Using the M- M equation Vo =Vmax [S]/(Km + [S]) or some other equation, you can calculate the Vmax by plugging in a rate, [S] data point and the given Km. The Vmax is 11 μM/s. b. Now solve the same equation for Vo using the Km and Vmax from part a. Vo is 0.32 μM/s. c. Vmaxapp =Vmax/ α’ ; α’= 1 + 0.01/1.7 x 10- 3; So Vmaxapp = 1.6 μM/s. The Kmapp =Km/ α’; So the Kmapp = 480 μM. Now use the M- M equation to solve for Vo with the given [S]. Vo = 1.5 μM/s. 10. Same as PS4, Q8. a. Vmax = kcat [ET], Vmax is 110 μM/s. b. Since 55 μM per second is 1⁄2 Vmax , you are simply being asked to calculate the Kmapp. The Vmaxapp =Vmax for competitive inhibitors. α is 5.76 and Kmapp =αKm. Km was given as 32 μM. Therefore the [S] is 5.76(32) = 184.4 μM. 11. The pK of lysine will increase making lysine harder to deprotonate and the pK of glutamate will decrease making...

    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.

    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.
