The Michaelis constant (Km) of an enzyme is defined as the substrate concentration to produce half-maximum velocity in an enzyme catalyzed reaction. It is expressed in moles/liter. Km value is a constant and a characteristic feature of a particular enzyme. A low Km value indicates a strong affinity between the enzyme and substrate, while a high value of Km indicates weak affinity between them.
