             Subject: Michaelis-Menten?

    This may seem an odd query, but it's genuine enough: does anyone here know
    of an historical study covering the applications of the Michaelis-Menten
    equation across the many disciplines in which it has been applied? (For the
    curious, an explanation of what this is can be found at
    Its range of applications is truly impressive, and to the outsider amazing
    -- all the way from enzyme kinetics to demographics. Surely this has caught
    the eye of an historian or two.

    Thanks for any leads.
