The effect on Lineweaver–Burk plot for an inhibitor that had a reaction scheme similar to the noncompetitive inhibition reaction. Concept introduction: Inhibitors are the chemical compounds that binds with an enzyme and block its catalytic activity. Many types of inhibitors are present in the cells, some of them are organic and some are synthetic. Noncompetitive inhibitors when binds to an enzyme does not affects the substrate affinity of the enzyme. Substrates can still bind with the enzyme although it may cause blockage of enzyme’s catalytic activity.
