 Medi-Centre - Dr. Maud Menten
Menten's contributions to science began with her work in 1913 in the laboratory of L. Michaelis in Berlin, where they collaborated on a famous paper on chemical kinetics which presented the world with the 'Michaelis-Menten Constant'.
Dr. Menten was an avid researcher all her life: in 1924 she discovered the hyperglycemic effects of salmonella toxins, in 1944 she determined the sedimentation constants and the electrophoretic mobilities of adult and fetal carboxyl hemoglobin, and she developed an azo-dye coupling reaction to demonstrate alkaline phosphotase in the kidney.
V is a constant depending on the amount of enzyme present and K is the constant characteristic of a given enzyme-substrate pair.

Maude Leonora Menten was one of the most versatile, innovative investigators in chemistry in the early part of the 20th century.
Menten was appointed fellow at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research for the 1907-1908 year were she studied the effect if radium on tumours.
Among her later work, the two most important contributions were the first use of electrophoretic mobility in studying human haemoglobins, and the use of an azo-dye coupling reaction for the study of alkaline phosphatase in kidneys, published 1944.

 Pitt Chronicle: Maud Who?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Menten, who eventually became a professor in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and head of pathology at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, worked with Michaelis to demystify enzyme kinetics—the study of rates and mechanisms of enzymatic reactions.
More importantly, Menten is believed to be the first to study human hemoglobins using electrophoresis (an innovation widely credited to Linus Pauling, though her work on this predated his by many years).
Menten was known for her 18-hour workdays, for delivering one-third of all daily pathology lectures as well as attending every lab session, and for being one of the most versatile scientists at Pitt.

 The Origins of Enzymology
His own work clearly prepared the way for Michaelis and Menten as well, and some authors suggest that he should be given partial credit for the equation associated with their names.
Whether or not Menten was the first Canadian biochemist, she was certainly not the first woman biochemist.
It is no coincidence, therefore, that the development of enzymology was greatly stimulated by Buchner’s discovery, and the first decades of the 20th Century saw the groundwork laid for the study of the kinetics and mechanisms of enzyme action, most notably by Leonor Michaelis and his collaborators.

Complementary structural properties of the enzyme and substrate are responsible for this specificity (Fig.
In 1913, Leonor Michaelis and Maud Menten proposed a quantitative theory of enzyme kinetics which is still widely used today (usually referred to as Michaelis-Menten kinetics).
Enzymes can perform up to several million catalytic reactions per second; to determine the maximum speed of an enzymatic reaction, the substrate concentration is increased until a constant rate of product formation is achieved.
