This simulator shows enzyme molecules (Black) converting substrate (Green) to product (Red) The graph on the right monitors the amount of product formed at different time points. Notice that these reactions are linear early on and are saturable. This is a good test for your kinetics measurements - use enzyme concentrations where the velocity is linear, but not so fast that you can not accurately measure the early reaction velocity. Click the "Add enzyme" button to restart measuring at a higher enzyme concentration. Try "Increase Temp" to simulate increased temperature. This simulation is quite computationally intensive, so it may run slower on older computers. Click here to go on to the next page.
