By measuring the rate of complex formation at different substrate concentrations, a Michaelis-Menten Curve can be plotted. Analysis of the plot provides biochemists with the maximum rate (Vmax) at which the reaction can proceed. As can be seen from the model, this plot is linear at low levels of substrate, and non-linear at higher levels of substrate. By examining the model, the reasons for this relationship can be seen easily.
