what does OIL RIG stand for

oxidation is loss (of electrons)
reduction is gain (of electrons)

2

what is catabolism

breakdown of something
(Catabolism = Cut)

remove introns, leaves exons

11

12

what is an isozyme

an enzymes 'cousin'

13

which enzymes do not follow the michaelis menton kinetic model

allosteric enzymes

14

what happens to K in competitive antagonists in the michaelis menton kinetic model

it changes

(C ompetitive = K C hanges)
