Concept Introduction:

Enzyme is a proteinecious structure and helps in catalysing the substrate and thus acts as catalyst. It helps in speeding up the particular reaction.

The enzyme acts on substrate and turns it into a product. With increase in concentration of enzyme the speed of reaction also increases.

Explanation

Decreasing or completely diminishing the activity of enzyme which is catalyzing a reaction is known as inhibition of an enzyme along with its activity.

With the attack of a metal Zn or Co on enzyme, the activity of enzyme can be inhibited and the enzyme cannot be activated again and thus is considered as irreversibly inhibited...
