The convergence of the data series on the y-axis of the Lineweaver-Burk plots is typical of a competitive inhibition mechanism, in which the value of [K.sub.m] increases although [V.sub.max] does not, whereas the data convergence on the x-axis indicates a noncompetitive mechanism, which in this case [K.sub.m] does not change, but [V.sub.max] diminishes.
