  • 1. From: Enzymes
  • 2. 2 What Are Enzymes? • Most enzymes are Proteins (tertiary and quaternary structures) • Act as Catalyst to accelerates a reaction • Not permanently changed in the process
  • 3. 3 Enzymes • Are specific for what they will catalyze • Are Reusable • End in –ase -Sucrase -Lactase -Maltase
  • 4. 4 How do enzymes Work? Enzymes work by weakening bonds which lowers activation energy
  • 5. 5 Enzymes Free Energy Progress of the reaction Reactants Products Free energy of activation Without Enzyme With Enzyme
  • 6. 6
  • 7. 7 Enzyme-Substrate Complex The substance (reactant) an enzyme acts on is the substrate EnzymeSubstrate Joins
  • 8. 8 Active Site • A restricted region of an enzyme molecule which binds to the substrate. Enzyme Substrate Active Site
  • 9. 9 Induced Fit • A change in the shape of an enzyme’s active site • Induced by the substrate
  • 10. 10 Induced Fit • A change in the configuration of an enzyme’s active site (H+ and ionic bonds are involved). • Induced by the substrate. Enzyme Active Site substrate induced fit
  • 11. 11 What Affects Enzyme Activity? • Three factors: 1. Environmental Conditions 2. Cofactors and Coenzymes 3. Enzyme Inhibitors
  • 12. 12 1. Environmental Conditions 1. Extreme Temperature are the most dangerous - high temps may denature (unfold) the enzyme. 2.pH (most like 6 - 8 pH near neutral) 3.Ionic concentration (salt ions)
  • 13. 13 2. Cofactors and Coenzymes • Inorganic substances (zinc, iron) and vitamins (respectively) are sometimes need for proper enzymatic activity. • Example: Iron must be present in the quaternary structure - hemoglobin in order for it to pick up oxygen.
  • 14. 14 Two examples of Enzyme Inhibitors a. Competitive inhibitors: are chemicals that resemble an enzyme’s normal substrate and compete with it for the active site. Enzyme Competitive inhibitor Substrate
  • 15. 15 Inhibitors b. Noncompetitive inhibitors: Inhibitors that do not enter the active site, but bind to another part of the enzyme causing the enzyme to change its shape, which in turn alters the active site. Enzyme active site altered Noncompetitive Inhibitor Substrate
