Flashcards in Biochemistry- Enzymes Deck (9)
What do enzymes do in chemical reactions?
lower activation energy to increase the rate of reaction, make it more likely to occur
What 2 things affect enzyme activity?
pH and temperature
The synthesis of an enzyme needed for breakdown of a certain structure is initiated by the presence of that substrate:
modulation of an enzyme by the nonequivalent binding of a specific metabolite at a site other than the active site is an example of what?
molecules that must undergo cleavage reactions in order to become active are known as what?
Substances that hold an enzyme in certain configurations so that it can function are known as what?
Phosphorylation or dephospho rylation of an enzyme is an example of what?
An enzyme bound to its coenzyme is known as what?
a holoenzyme ('whole')
