Enzymes What are enzymes Biological catalysts produced by organisms to accelerate and control reactions and reaction rates Usually large proteins with molecular weights of 10000 to 1000000 gmol Very selective in the reactions they catalyze and absolutely specific work for only one substrate in only one reaction Enzyme active sites ideally suited for binding transition states enzymesubstrate complex stabilizes it How are vitamins related to enzymes Nonprotein parts of enzymes coenzymes Combine with the protein part to make enzymes Vitaminderived enzymes play citical roles in redox chemistry in the body source of heat and energy Control of enzymes Activating enzymes Some enzymes wait in an ofF state then activate chemically inorganic or organic when needed Activity depends on temperature pH and concentration of substrate Molecular shape depends on pH temperature and reactions of the enzyme can turn the enzyme on and off Inhibiting enzyme activity Denature Competitive inhibition bind another molecule to the active site drugs and poisons cutting it off Noncompetitive inhibition molecule binding one place modifies the active site Irreversible inhibitors strong

activity of an enzyme Example Zn2 is activator for carbonic an hyd rase Metal ions play a role in redox chemistry of the body CONTROL OF ENZYMES Enzyme activity can be inhibited 1 Denature change shape via Temp or pH change 1 Competitive inhibition bind a molecule to its active site blocking any catalytic activity Many drugs and poisons work by this mechanism Competitive inhibitors can be overcome by increasing the concentration of substrate 3 Noncompetitive inhibition Bind a molecule to another site on enzyme this results in a modification of the active site 4 lrreversiblelnhibitors
