Evolution of enzymes

I would like to know if there is any known correlation between enzymatic
activity and evolution; i.e. if the activity of a given enzyme (its
Kcat.)varies in the different organisms in a way that has something to
do with their
evolutionary distance.
 If the answer is yes, do you have any references on this subject?
 Please, reply (also) to my e-mail address, since I do not usually read
this newsgroup.
 Thanks a lot in advance,
