BIOLOGY
(Continuation of Problem 86) Estimating vmax and Km from the Lineweaver–Burk graph as described in Problem 86 is not always satisfactory. A different transformation typically yields better estimates (Dowd and Riggs, 1965). Show that the Michaelis–Menten equation can be written as and explain why this transformation results in a straight line when you graph v0 on the horizontal axis and on the vertical axis. Explain how you can estimate vmax and Km from the graph.(REFERENCE ) Michaelis–Menten Equation Enzymes serve as catalysts in many chemical reactions in living systems. The simplest such reactions transform a single substrate into a product with the help of an enzyme. The Michaelis–Menten equation describes the initial velocity of such enzymatically controlled reactions. The equation, which gives the relationship between the initial velocity of the reaction (v0) and the concentration of the substrate (s0), is where vmax is the maximum velocity at which the product may be formed and Km is the Michaelis–Menten constant. Note that this equation has the same form as the Monod growth function. (a) Show that the Michaelis–Menten equation can be written in the form This formula is known as the Lineweaver–Burk equation and shows that there is a linear relationship between 1/v0 and 1/s0. (b) Sketch the graph of the Lineweaver–Burk equation. Use a coordinate system in which 1/s0 is on the horizontal axis and 1/v0 is on the vertical axis. Show that the resulting graph is a line that intersects the horizontal axis at −1/Km and the vertical axis at 1/vmax. (c) To determine Km and vmax, we measure the initial velocity of the reaction, denoted by v0, as a function of the concentration of the substrate, denoted by s0, and fit a straight line through the points in a coordinate system in which the horizontal axis is 1/s0 and the vertical axis is 1/v0. Explain how to determine Km and vmax from the graph. (Note that this is an example in which a nonlogarithmic transformation is used to obtain a linear relationship. Since the reciprocals of both quantities of interest are used, the resulting plot is called a double-reciprocal plot.)
