Two techniques for determining enzyme kinetic constants using isothermal titration microcalorimetry are presented. The methods are based on the proportionality between the rate of a reaction and the thermal power (heat/time) generated. (i) An enzyme can be titrated with increasing amounts of substrate, while pseudo-first-order conditions are maintained. (ii) Following a single injection, the change in thermal power as substrate is depleted can be continuously monitored. Both methods allow… 
Complete Kinetic Characterization of Enzyme Inhibition in a Single Isothermal Titration Calorimetric Experiment.
TLDR
This work has developed a new ITC experiment, in which substrate and inhibitor are premixed in the injection syringe, that yields complete kinetic characterization of an enzyme inhibitor in an hour or less, providing substantially improved inhibitor characterization for biochemistry and drug development applications.
Enzyme kinetics determined by single-injection isothermal titration calorimetry.
TLDR
It is found that KM, k2 and ΔRH can be accurately estimated without correcting for the calorimeter time constant, τ, if (k2E/KM), where E is the total active enzyme concentration, is between 0.1/ τ and 1/τ and the reaction goes to at least 99% completion.

Enzyme Kinetics by Isothermal Titration Calorimetry: Allostery, Inhibition, and Dynamics
TLDR
The use of ITC is described to measure the strength, mode (i.e., competitive, uncompetitive, or mixed), and association and dissociation kinetics of enzyme inhibitors, and examples of I TC applied to complex, heterogeneous mixtures, such as insoluble substrates and live cells are provided.
Characterizing Bi-substrate Enzyme Kinetics at High Resolution by 2D-ITC.
TLDR
2D-ITC is developed, which maps the reaction velocity as a function of two substrate concentrations in a single, roughly 2 h long experiment, and finds that while Phe reduces affinity for the substrate phosphoenolpyruvate, it also alleviates inhibition by the reaction product ATP, which had not been reported previously.

Penicillinase from B. cereus 569 is denatured when treated with high molar concentrations of urea or guanidine hydrochloride, and removal of the denaturants results in full restoration of activity and rotatory dispersion very similar to those obtained for the native enzyme.
