Biochem Chapter 3

Post by abr95 » Tue Sep 18, 2018 11:48 pm

On page 61 in the biochem book it says Km is a measure of how much enzyme you need to get halfway to the saturation point. I thought Km is the measure of how much substrate is needed to get to halfway of saturation point/vmax. Can someone please clarify?

It should say substrate. Km is the amount of the substrate needed to reach half an enzymes Vmax. We will get that fixed ASAP. Good catch!
