Abstract: Enzyme action was investigated by assuming the occurrence of different states of enzyme-substrate affinities. These states were considered to involve enzyme species with distinct abilities to form reaction product. The results obtained showed strong agreement with the experimental data for the action of peroxidase. This approach provides a powerful tool for predicting the kinetic behavior of other enzymatic processes in conditions not described before. An additional feature of this approach is the ability to characterize processes at any enzyme-substrate concentration ratio, including high enzyme-substrate ratios and enzyme inhibition by substrate or product. This proposal can also be used in systems with heterogeneity concerning the investigated enzyme. © 2014 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
