You have an enzyme that uses two substrates in a random reaction (the order of binding of the substrates is random).

You have an enzyme that uses two substrates in a random reaction (the order of binding of the substrates is random). And the reaction A + B à P is catalyzed by the enzyme bringtogetherase

You have carried out five sets of reaction rates Keeping B constant and varying A and then increasing B and Vary ing A again until all combinations of A and B are measured. In the reaction you used 0.02 mg of bringtogetherase which is a 120,000 Dalton protein.

The set of data is as follows

Determine the Km for A, the Km for B the Vmax and the turnover number for the enzyme.

To get the Vmax you need to replot the intercepts [Vmax apparent] vs the other substrate.
