Description
Lecture 7 Text Notes Catalysts - first-order chemical reaction – conversion from A to P occurs because a fraction of A molecules has the free energy to reach the transition state - high probability of A to P transition occurring - rate of any chemical reaction is proportional to the concentration of reactant molecules having transition state energy - higher transition state energy – smaller the fraction of molecules have higher than average energy state – slower reaction speed - free energy of activation – height of energy barrier – the energy required to raise the average energy of 1 mol of reactant to the transition-state energy - enzyme is often orders of magnitude larger than its substrate - active site comprises only a portion of the overall enzyme structure Michaelis-Menten Equation - general theory of enzyme
