This textbook for advanced courses in enzyme chemistry and enzyme kinetics covers the field of steady-state enzyme kinetics from the basic principles inherent in the Henri equation to the expressions that describe the control of multi-enzyme pathways. Steady-state kinetic equations are derived with the use of the connection matrix method, and an algorithm is developed that can be implemented easily for computer-based derivation of the equations. Throughout the book emphasis is placed on a proper interpretation of the kinetic behavior of multi-reactant enzymic reactions and on the interpretation of control coefficients in terms of metabolic control. Problems are included at the end of each chapter and their solutions are found at the end of the book.
