Enzyme Kinetics

Enzyme Kinetics

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


Essential skills

  • Calculate with the Michaelis-Menten equation

  • Be able to read Michaelis-Menten graphs and Lineweaver-Burk plots

  • Determine the type of inhibition in a reaction


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The basics of enzyme kinetics in terms of KM, Vmax, kcat

  • The different types of enzyme inhibition

  • The 5 main types of enzyme regulation


On the MCAT

  • This is a super high yield topic - study all aspects of it well

  • As with much of the MCAT, go beyond pure memorization and recall

  • Most enzyme kinetics equations are presented as real data and experiments


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.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
