Perturbation Theory in the Catalytic Rate Constant of the Henri-Michaelis-Menten Enzymatic Reaction (Journal article)

Bakalis, E./ Kosmas, M./ Papamichael, E. M.

The Henry-Michaelis-Menten (HMM) mechanism of enzymatic reaction is studied by means of perturbation theory in the reaction rate constant k (2) of product formation. We present analytical solutions that provide the concentrations of the enzyme (E), the substrate (S), as well as those of the enzyme-substrate complex (C), and the product (P) as functions of time. For k (2) small compared to k (-1), we properly describe the entire enzymatic activity from the beginning of the reaction up to longer times without imposing extra conditions on the initial concentrations E (o) and S (o) , which can be comparable or much different.
