About This Chapter
How it works:
- Identify which concepts are covered on your enzymatic biochemistry homework.
- Find videos on those topics within this chapter.
- Watch fun videos, pausing and reviewing as needed.
- Complete sample problems and get instant feedback.
- Finish your enzymatic biochemistry homework with ease!
Topics from your homework you'll be able to complete:
- Enzyme functions
- Enzymatic reactions
- Functions and interactions of coenzymes, cofactors and prosthetic groups
1. Function of Enzymes: Substrate, Active Site & Activation Energy
Enzymes are proteins that lower the activation energy of a reaction and act as a catalyst in living organisms. Learn more about the concepts of activation energy, substrate, enzyme-substrate complex, and active site, and discover their connection to the structure and function of enzymes.
2. Enzyme Activity & Inhibition: Structure, Substrates, pH & Temperature
Enzymes need specific conditions to have the best reaction rate possible, which is influenced by many variables, the most important of which is the point of saturation. Explore the structure of enzymes and discover the effects of substrate concentration, temperate, and pH.
3. Coenzymes, Cofactors & Prosthetic Groups: Function and Interactions
Enzymes sometimes require partners, called coenzymes, to function. Learn about two other aspects of enzyme function, including cofactors and prosthetic groups, each of which has different functions and interacts with enzymes differently.
4. Enzymatic Reactions: Inhibition and Regulation
Enzymes can be regulated positively by activators or negatively by inhibitors. Explore more examples of enzyme activity regulation, competitive inhibition, and non-competitive inhibition.
