This webinar is all about enzyme kinetics, a key part of MCAT biochemistry. You will learn about the different graphs and equations, such as Michaelis-Menten and Lineweaver-Burk, that the MCAT requires, as well as the different types of enzyme regulation and inhibition.
At a glance
Calculate with enzyme kinetics equations
Read enzyme tables, Michaelis-Menten graphs and Lineweaver Burk plots
Deduce cooperativity from tables and graphs
Determine and differentiate inhibitions
Binding vs. turnover
The 3 equations of enzyme kinetics
The 4 “k’s” of enzyme kinetics
The 2 graphs (Michaelis-Menten and Lineweaver-Burk)
The 3 types of inhibition
On the MCAT
Enzyme kinetics is one of the highest yield topics on the exam, second only to amino acids. It can be both calculation and graph intensive. There are also a lot of k’s! Don’t confuse them!
Don’t just memorize equations and tables without understanding the process; the test will always find your weak spots.
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
