I ordered one of the standard cellular and molecular biology texts per suggestion in a past topic. It would take a competent ES to pull from that level, but it's certainly where to go if you've mastered the AP level stuff and want to go deeper. I just pull bits and pieces from it, at times.

I started reading Albert's Molecular Biology of the Cell, it's a really nice textbook and it goes in much more detail than Campbell. You can probably find a pdf online somewhere. The same author also wrote Essential Cell Biology, which is a little less in depth, but pretty cheap if you want to buy a print copy from amazon, and it has a nice overview of cell bio and some nice pictures.

Quick question. How is it that Km can be higher than Vmax such as with lysozyme

Where can you get important resources for studying?

I haven't studied this topic much yet, but from looking at this link: https://www.chem.wisc.edu/deptfiles/gen ... nzyme4.htm

Could it just be a higher number because Km and Vmax are in different units? Km is the substrate concentration in mM at which half the enzyme's active sites are occupies by substrate, and Vmax is the rate of the reaction in mmol/s when there is enough substrate to saturate the active sites of the enzyme, so I don't think that the values for Km and Vmax are exactly comparable
Where can you get important resources for studying?
Google the topic you're trying to learn about
Google to find links to pdfs of textbooks
Any biology textbook is a good place to start, if you want to go more in depth you might want a textbook specific to cell biology (I like Albert's Molecular Biology of the Cell, I found a copy online but you could also try a used book store like Half-Price Books and it shouldn't be too expensive. Essential Cell Biology is also a good resource if you find it at a bookstore or online)
I basically like to take notes from any resources I can find: textbooks, websites I find from google searches, even youtube videos.
There are also a number of links on the official SO website: https://www.soinc.org/cell_biology_c

Thank you I was caught up thinking Vmax and Km were measured the same.

So Im new to cell biology but I am taking Ap bio and should have learnt all the topics by competition time. Is there anything I should worry about?
