  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "enzyme concentration activity" to get these possible sources:

    http://student.ccbcmd.edu/~gkaiser/biotutorials/proteins/enzyme.html
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enzyme_assay
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enzyme

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
