The genes contained in mitochondrial DNA, unlike those in the nucleus, are inherited only from the mother [5]. The primary function of mitochondrial genes is to code for proteins vital to producing ATP [2]. Most of the enzymes operating in the mitochondrion, however, are coded by nuclear DNA and synthesized on the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) in the cytosol.

This increases the number of substrate molecules acted on by the enzyme-catalyzed reaction and is said to increase the rate of the reaction. However, this relationship applies only to a concentration of substrate that is less than the concentration that “saturates” the enzyme. At saturation levels of substrate, the enzyme molecule functions at its maximum velocity (Vmax), and the occurrence of a still higher concentration of substrate cannot increase the velocity further. The velocity of a chemical reaction is defined by an equilibrium constant.
