Michaelis buffer
Michaelis constant - the true dissociation constant for the enzyme-substrate binary complex in a single-substrate rapid equilibrium enzyme-catalyzed reaction. Synonym(s): Michaelis-Menten constant
Michaelis-Gutmann body - a rounded homogenous body containing calcium and iron found within macrophages in the bladder wall in malacoplakia.
Michaelis-Menten constant - Synonym(s): Michaelis constant
Michaelis-Menten equation - an initial-rate equation for a single-substrate noncooperative enzyme-catalyzed reaction relating the initial velocity to the initial substrate concentration. Synonym(s): Victor-Michaelis-Menten equation
Michaelis-Menten hypothesis - that a complex is formed between an enzyme and its substrate (the O'Sullivan-Tompson hypothesis), which complex then decomposes to yield free enzyme and the reaction products (Brown hypothesis), the latter rate determining the overall rate of substrate-product conversion.
Victor-Michaelis-Menten equation - Synonym(s): Michaelis-Menten equation
