1

6 major classes of enzymes? (IUBMB System)

1) oxidoreductases
2) transferases
3) hydrolases
4) lyases
5) isomerases
6) ligases

2

What are oxidoreductases?

Oxidation-reduction reactions

3

What are transferases?

Transfer of C, N, or P containing groups

4

What are hydrolases?

Cleavage of bonds via addition of water

5

What are lyases?

Cleavage of C-C, C-S, & certain C-N bonds

6

What are isomerases?

Racemization of optical/geometric isomers

7

What are ligases?

Formation of bonds bet. C and O, S,N coupled to hydrolysis of high-energy phosphates

8

Reactions occurring in mitochondria?

1) TCA cycle
2) Fatty acid oxidation
3) Decarboxylation of pyruvate

9

Reactions occurring in cytosol?

1) glycolysis
2) hexose monophosphate shunt (HMP pathway)
3) fatty acid synthesis

10

Reactions occurring in nucleus?

DNA & RNA synthesis

11

Reactions occurring in lysosomes?

Degradation of complex macromolecules

12

2 factors governing rate of enzyme-catalyzed reactions?

1) temperature
2) pH

13

Curve shape of enzymes following Michaelis-Menten kinetics?

Hyperbolic

14

Curve shape of allosteric enzymes?

Sigmoid

15

Equation for Michaelis-Menten kinetics?

Vo = Vmax * [S] / Km + [S]

16

What does a high Km mean?

Enzyme has ⬇️ affinity for substrate

17

What does a low Km mean?

Enzyme has ⬆️ affinity for substrate

18

At 1/2 Vmax, what is Km?

Km = [S]

19

What is a first order reaction?

[S] << Km
[S]⬆️, v ⬆️

20

What is a zero order reaction?

[S] >> Km
v constant & equal to Vmax, independent of [S]

21

What is turnover number?

# substrate converted to product/enzyme/unit time

22

Equation for Lineweaver-Burke plot?
X-axis?
Y-axis?
Slope?

1/v = Km / Vmax * [S] + 1 / Vmax

X-axis = -1 / Km
Y-axis = 1 / Vmax
Slope = Km / Vmax

23

What is a reversible inhibitor?
Types?

Binds enzyme via non-covalent bonds

1) competitive
2) noncompetitive
3) uncompetitive

24

What is competitive inhibition?

Structural analog of substrate binds to active site on enzyme

Km ⬆️, Vmax stays same

25

4 circumstances for competitive inhibition?

1) analogs compete w/S to bind @ active site on E
2) in 2S E catalyzed rxn, ⬆️ [2nd S] competes w/first for binding
3) in freely reversible rxn, P functions as inhibitor
4) in rxn w/metal ion cofactors, similar metal ions compete for same binding site on E

26

Describe Michaels-Menton & Line weaver-Burke plot graphs for competitive inhibition?

Km ⬆️, Vmax stays same

Curve slopes up at lower X value (MM)
Straight line slopes higher, through same Y-intercept, different X-intercept (LB)

27

What is noncompetitive inhibition?

Inhibitor not structurally similar to S
Inhibitor binds to different site from S binding site on E (inactivates via binding to free E or ES complex)

Vmax ⬇️, Km stays same

28

Describe Michaels-Menton & Line weaver-Burke plot graphs for noncompetitive inhibition?

Vmax ⬇️, Km stays same

Curve flattens at lower Y value (MM)
Straight line slopes higher, through same X-intercept, different Y-intercept (LB)

29

What is uncompetitive inhibition?

Inhibitor binds to ES complex ➡️ forms ESI complex

Km and Vmax change

30

Describe Michaels-Menton & Line weaver-Burke plot graphs for uncompetitive inhibition?

Vmax & Km change

Curve slopes up at lower X value, flattens at lower Y value (MM)
Parallel lines, smaller X intercept, larger Y intercept (LB)

38

What is a irreversible inhibitor?

Reacts act/near active site of enzyme, covalently modifies active site OR binds so tightly that dilution of EI complex doesn't provide recovery of E activity

39

2 examples of irreversible inhibition?

AchE: inhibited by organophosphorus compounds (sarin gas)

Cytochrome oxidase: inhibited by cyanide (CN-)

40

How is cytochrome oxidase reactivated?

Nitrites (NaNO2), makes MetHb ➡️ higher affinity for CN- than cytochrome oxidase

41

2 types of regulation?

Regulatory enzymes: catalyze rate-limiting step or committed step

Feedback inhibition by end product

42

What are allosteric enzymes?

Regulated by non-covalent interactions of compounds at sites besides the catalytic site

Rate determining enzymes

43

What are the ligands that regulate at allosteric sites?

Effectors, modulators, or modifiers

44

Type of graph for allosteric enzymes?

Sigmoidal (does not follow MM kinetics)

45

What is cooperativity?

How binding of ligand at allosteric site affects binding of same or another ligand to enzyme

Can be positive (activatory, ⬆️ affinity for S) or negative (inhibitory, ⬇️ affinity for S)

46

What are homotropic interactions in allosteric enzymes?

Same ligand positively influences cooperativity bet diff modulator sites

47

3 features of homotropic enzyme graph?

[S] = + modulator
K0.5 = 1/2Vmax (not Km)
Vmax at high [S]

48

What are heterotropic interactions in allosteric enzymes?

Effect of one ligand on binding of diff ligand

49

Features of heterotropic graph: same Vmax, changed K0.5

+ modulator: ⬇️ K0.5

- modulator: ⬆️ K0.5

50

Features of heterotropic graph: changed Vmax, same K0.5

+ modulator: ⬆️ Vmax

- modulator: ⬇️ Vmax

51
