Flashcards in Biochemistry Deck (17):
What is the equation for Vmax?
What is the definition of kcat?
What is the definition of km?
[S] when 50% of the enzyme's active sites are saturated and indicates enzyme's affinity for substrate
What is the equation for catalytic efficiency?
kcat/km --> high kcat or low km indicates high catalytic efficiency
What is the equation for enzyme v?
v= (Vmax [S]) / (km + [S])
= ([E] [S] kcat)/ (km + [S])
What is the glycosidic bond in sucrose?
What is the glycosidic bond in lactose?
What is the glycosidic bond in maltose?
What is the glycosidic bond in cellulose?
What is the glycosidic bond in starch?
amylose (unbranched): a-1,4
amylopectin (branched): same + a-1,6 linked branches
What is the glycosidic bond in glycogen?
a-1,4 (unbranched) and a-1,6 (branches)
take away water
Got its name because it removes water from H2CO3 (carbonic acid) BUT catalyzes the reaction in both directions
Only speed up the reaction they do not change the equilibrium.
Beta-oxidation of even numbered FA
n= #C/2= #acetyl CoAs
n -1= number of rounds of B-ox because last one generates 2 acetyl CoA
