Exponential Growth Population Example
  1. The Michaelis-Menten equation is used to mathematically illustrate the biological conversion of a substrate and enzyme to a complex and then to a product.
  2. The Lineweaver-Burk experiment is an example of the Michaelis-Menten equation in action. The results were obtained by manipulating the original equation (ie: taking the reciprocal) and converting the MM equation into mx+b format.
  3. A chemostat reaction is a "test" to find the equilibrium point of a system, where the amount of substance consumed equals the amount produced or the amount into the system equals the amount going out.
  4. Exponential growth looks very similar to ex when graphed (pattern: more product=faster growth).

Applying Michealis-Menten Models

k1 = 2.0, k-1 = 0.0, k2 = 1.0, k2 = 2.0, k2 = 5.0, k2 = 10.0 k1 = 2.0, k-1 = 1.0, k2 = 1.0, k2 = 2.0, k2 = 5.0, k2 = 10.0 k1 = 2.0, k-1 = 5.0, k2 = 1.0, k2 = 2.0, k2 = 5.0, k2 = 10.0

Estimating Michaelis-Menten Parameters

Vmax = 0.031551

K = 27.10932
