Kinetic studies of a beta-lactamase by a computerized microacidimetric method.

Abstract

On-line computerized treatment of enzyme kinetic data allows the precise measurement of Michaelis--Menten constants (Km and V) from a single progress curve. This method has been used to determine the kinetic constants of a beta-lactamase extracted from an Escherichia coli strain. In the profile of enzymatic activity there obtained, Km and V are a function of the pH. From these results some information is derived about the mechanism of the enzyme--substrate binding.
