A steady-state kinetic method for the verification of the rapid-equilibrium assumption in allosteric enzymes.


A method for testing the validity of the rapid-equilibrium assumption as it might apply to allosteric enzymes using exclusively steady-state kinetic data is presented. The method is based upon a recognition that the ratio of apparent dissociation constants for the allosteric ligand, obtained under conditions of limiting and saturating substrate… (More)
