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
