Answer to Question #23349 in Biochemistry for Rabiya
what will happen to the rate of reaction if the amount of substrate (starch) is increased?
How increasing the substrate concentration increases the rate of reaction, to a certain point. This is because, as substrate concentration increases, more enzyme-substrate complexes can be formed per second.But it is known till the saturation point, which is where every enzymes active site is working continuously, and the enzymes cannot work faster so substrate simply ends up 'queuing up' and waiting for an active site.
