____ is a compound on which enzyme "works"
____ is the specific portion of the enzyme where substrate binds
active site
____ is the process that makes an inactive nezyme active.
____ is any process that makes an enzyme less active or inactive
Both the lock-and-key model and the induced-fit model emphasize the shape of the ______.
active site
The ____ of the active site is the most important.
5 amino acids that participate in active sites
His > Cys > Asp > Arg > Glu
____ is a substance that binds to the active site of an enzyme thus preventing binding of substrate
competitve inhibitor
____ is any substnce that binds to a portion of the enzyme other than the active site and thus inhibits the activity of the enzyme.
noncompetitive inhibitor
The induced-fit model comparing active site to a glove and substrate to a hand explains _____
competitive inhibition
_____ is the binding of a regulator to a site other than the active site changing the shape of the the active site.
Allosteric effect
______ is an enzyme-regulation process where the product of a series of enzyme-catalyzed reactions inhibits an earlier reaction in a sequence.
