Catalysis – Enzyme Active Site

2023-03-20T13:21:40-05:00March 13th, 2023|

Enzyme kinetics is a challenging concept for students to visualize. Substrate binding to the active site of an enzyme involves multiple weak interactions between the R-groups of the amino acids and the substrate. These weak interactions increase the binding energy, lower the energy of activation, and prevents side reactions. The mechanism used by enzymes to [...]
