Enzyme Kinetics - Problems

  1. Oct 6, 2004 #1
    So, we were given a set of data of (uM) and the Velocity (umol/minute) of an inhibitor and no inhibitor.

    we are supposed to find the values of Vmax and Km in the absence of inhibitor and in the presence.

    do I use 1/Vo = 1/Vmax + Km/Vmax - 1/?

    but what is Km and the intial velocity?

    I'm sure this is fundamental for many, but the help would be appreciated.

    Using that equation, wouldn't we need to know what either [tex]K{m}[/tex] or [tex]V{max}[/tex] is?
