A Comprehensive Enzyme Kinetic Exercise for Biochemistry

The kinetics of the dephosphorylation of sodium p-nitrophenol using the enzyme bovine alkaline phosphatase is studied by measuring the reaction’s velocity spectrophotometrically as a function of the substrate’s concentration. The kinetic parameters Km and Vm are determined using Lineweaver-Burke and Eadie-Hofstee plots.
