colour.biochemistry.reaction_rate_MichealisMenten(S, V_max, K_m)[source]

Describes the rate of enzymatic reactions, by relating reaction rate $$v$$ to concentration of a substrate $$S$$.

Parameters
• S (array_like) – Concentration of a substrate $$S$$.

• V_max (array_like) – Maximum rate $$V_{max}$$ achieved by the system, at saturating substrate concentration.

• K_m (array_like) – Substrate concentration $$V_{max}$$ at which the reaction rate is half of $$V_{max}$$.

Returns

Reaction rate $$v$$.

Return type

array_like
