. Describe enzyme catalysis as a series of steps, with E symbolizing the enzyme and S symbolizing the substrate.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret steps of enzyme catalysis with E symbolizing enzyme and S as substrate.

Concept Introduction:

Enzyme is a proteinaceous structure and helps in catalyzing the substrate and thus act as catalyst. It helps in speeding up the 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

Enzyme on reacting with substrate produces ES complex which was developed in 1890 by Emil Fischer. This model explains the binding the active site of an enzyme with a molecule of substrate. The active site having a fixed structure such as lock, which is having the exact shape to the structure of a specific substrate considered as key.

Enzyme get linked with substrate to produce ES complex as follows:

Enzyme(E)+Substrate(S)=Com
