Kinetic Parameters for the Noncatalyzed and Enzyme-Catalyzed Mutarotation of Glucose Using a Blood Glucometer
Hardee, John R.; Delgado, Bryan; Jones, Wray
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n6 p798-800 Jun 2011
The kinetic parameters for the conversion of alpha-D-glucose to beta-D-glucose were measured using a blood glucometer. The reaction order, rate constant, and Arrhenius activation energy are reported for the noncatalyzed reaction and turnover number and Michaelis constant are reported for the reaction catalyzed by porcine kidney mutarotase. The experiment is relatively simple and inexpensive and can be used in general chemistry and undergraduate biochemistry laboratories. (Contains 7 figures.)
