The Michaelis–Menten equation is one of the most extensively used models in biochemistry for studying enzyme kinetics. However, this model requires at least a couple (e.g., eight or more) of measurements at different substrate concentrations to determine kinetic parameters. Here, we report the discovery of a novel tool for calculating kinetic constants in the Michaelis–Menten equation from only a single enzymatic assay. As a consequence, our method leads to reduced costs and time, primarily by lowering the amount of enzymes, since their isolation, storage and usage can be challenging when conducting research.
