## Bottleneck

$V_{0} = \frac{V_{max}[S]}{K_{M} + [S]}; K_{M} = \frac{[E][S]}{[ES]}$

### Bottleneck

Does the bottleneck effect cause a change in K overall?

No, it only describes a concept in reaction rate and kinetics, but it doesn't change K at equilibrium. It may change how long it takes for a reaction to get to equilibrium however.

No, but it may affect the amount of time a reaction needs to take place.
