A novel process called substrate induced quenching (SIQ) and a mathematical derivation of an empirical relation describing it are presented. Based on this a model is proposed for a dehydrogenase enzymatic system that includes the effects due to dynamic/static quenching of the fluorophore by either the enzyme substrate or the product. The validity of the model is shown by comparison with experimental results for the SIQ based ethanol assay involving the alcohol dehydrogenase enzyme. Various applications of this novel technique are discussed.
