Pharmacology Quiz #1: Enzymes Kinetics

Pharmacology Quiz #1: Enzymes Kinetics

1. A researcher is studying a new enzyme and observes that, at a fixed enzyme concentration, the rate of the reaction increases with substrate concentration until it reaches a maximum rate (Vmax). At this point, further increases in substrate concentration do not increase the reaction rate. Which of the following best explains why the reaction rate does not increase beyond this point? 

Question 1 of 5

2. In an experiment involving enzyme kinetics, an inhibitor is added that increases both the apparent Km and Vmax of the enzyme. Which of the following types of inhibition is this inhibitor likely exerting? 

Question 2 of 5

3. A student is studying an enzyme involved in nucleotide metabolism. When the concentration of ATP is significantly increased, the enzyme's activity decreases. This regulation mechanism is best described as: 

Question 3 of 5

4. An enzyme shows a Km of 5 mM for its substrate. Which of the following best describes the interpretation of this Km value? 

Question 4 of 5

5. In the study of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction, it is found that the presence of a certain molecule decreases the Vmax of the enzyme without affecting the Km. This molecule is most likely acting as which of the following? 

Question 5 of 5
