5.50 Enzymes: Structure and Function


Class Info

Introduction to methods used to elucidate the mechanism of enzyme-catalyzed reactions. Application of steady-state and presteady-state kinetics, isotope effect measurements, site-directed mutagenesis, and mechanism-based inhibitors as tools to investigate the mechanisms of enzymes that have been well-characterized structurally.

This class has 5.07, 7.05, 5.12, and 5.13 as prerequisites.

5.50 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by J. Stubbe.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 1-246.
