Some articles on rate:
... As enzyme-catalysed reactions are saturable, their rate of catalysis does not show a linear response to increasing substrate ... If the initial rate of the reaction is measured over a range of substrate concentrations (denoted as ), the reaction rate (v) increases as increases, as shown on the right ... the enzyme becomes saturated with substrate and the rate reaches Vmax, the enzyme's maximum rate ...
Famous quotes containing the words constant and/or rate:
“Our farmers round, well pleased with constant gain,
Like other farmers, flourish and complain.”
—George Crabbe (17541832)
“At this very moment,... the most frightful horrors are taking place in every corner of the world. People are being crushed, slashed, disembowelled, mangled; their dead bodies rot and their eyes decay with the rest. Screams of pain and fear go pulsing through the air at the rate of eleven hundred feet per second. After travelling for three seconds they are perfectly inaudible. These are distressing facts; but do we enjoy life any the less because of them? Most certainly we do not.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
