Enzyme Inhibitors

Satisfactory Essays
Inhibitors of enzyme reduce enzyme reaction by intruding with the enzyme. The effect of this can be permanent or temporary. First, kind of enzyme inhibitors competitive Enzyme Inhibitors work by preventing the formation of Enzyme-Substrate Complexes because they have a similar shape to the substrate molecule. They fit into the active part, however remain non response when they start to get different structure to substrate. That’s why the small amount of substrate molecules can decrease enzyme's reaction rate. However while the competitive enzyme works by preventing formation of Enzyme-Substrate Complexes, the non-competitive inhibitors are not. They prevent substrate from product form creates react , bind to a site other than the Active
