# Estimation of Ks and max Values

Question

Assuming maintenance is achieved entirely by endogenous metabolism, analysis of the given data showed that max = 0.95 h-1 and Ks = 0.141 mg/mL. On the other hand, assuming maintenance is achieved entirely by substrate consumption, analysis of the given data showed that  max = 2.3 h-1 and Ks = 0.548 mg/mL. Using no more than two sentences in each case, clearly describe why the outcomes stated below are to be expected.

1. The value of max estimated under the assumption of maintenance by substrate consumption was greater than that estimated under assumption of maintenance by indigenous metabolism.
2. The value of Ks estimated under the assumption of maintenance by substrate consumption was greater than that estimated under the assumption of maintenance by endogenous metabolism.

Summary

This question belongs to bioreactors in biotechnology and discusses about maintenance of a bioreactor by endogenous metabolism.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
