1

If you keep the enzyme concentration constant...

At high Substrate concentrations, the maximum speed for a reaction (Vmax) will occur

2

Formation of steady state

the concentration of enzyme-substrate complex is CONSTANT Formation of [ES] = Loss of [ES]

 

 

3

what is Km

the concentration of substrate at which our reaction speed is half of the Vmax

4

the lower the Km

the better the ezyme is at working when substrate concentrations are small

5

Primary spermatocytes undergo..

meiosis to form secondary spermatocytes

6

First sign of mitosis

condensing of the chromosomes

7

G1 is present in the 

cytoplasm

8

what meiotic characterics does motisis share?

replication of chromosomes occurs prior to prophase

9

Correct order of the phases of mitosis

Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase
