PHRG 5130 - Enzyme Kinetics (3)
Prerequisites: Biochemistry and lab, or with the consent of the instructor. This course will explore the theoretical and practical aspects of enzyme kinetics. Michaelis-Menton kinetics will be thoroughly covered for one- and two-substrate reactions. Topics will include modes of enzyme inhibition and the methods used to determine mechanisms of action for inhibitors and activators of enzyme activity. Original research journal articles will be used as case studies to illustrate the practical application of enzyme kinetics in research and drug discovery.
