Recognize this irreversible equation for kinetic modeling?

  1. Aug 4, 2015 #1
    Hi all,
    I'm trying to come up with velocity equations for a multi-enzymatic system and came across this velocity equation. Does anyone recognize this equation?

    There was no citation or derivation and the variables were not explained. This is my guess:
    • P, Q, A, B are concentrations of some sort
    • Keq is the equilibrium constant
    • Ka, Kb, Kp, Kq are the Michaelis constants
    I also find it odd that I found this under the "2 substrates" section, because it seems like there are 4 substrates here. If anyone has anything to contribute regarding this equation, I'd be very thankful!
