Michaelis-Menten Kinetics


where:

Vmax = maximum velocity of the enzyme process; the velocity may approach Vmax but will never reach it.

Km = Michaelis-Menten constant, equal to the concentration at which the rate of the process equals half of the maximum rate.

dS/dt = elimination rate of the substrate

dP/dt = rate of product formation

S = substrate
