The purpose of this DynaFit tutorial is to present detailed, step-by-step method to determine the substrate kinetic constants from a single well chosen reaction progress curve, which is purposely allowed to achieve full conversion of substrate into product. The results show that the steady-state kinetic values obtained either by the classical initial rate method or by the numerical integration method are identical. The advantage of the numerical method is that it requires only a single kinetic experiment (i.e., a single well chosen substrate concentration), whereas the classic initial rate method relies on multiple experiments performed at a variety of substrate concentrations.
