Proteins and Enzymes

ID #2386

Do either of the substrate or inhibitor covalently link to the enzyme active site?

Both the substrate for a given enzyme and its inhibitor can interact in a variety of ways with the enzyme, and this is dependent on a given enzyme. I think the main thing to focus on is the different types of enzyme inhibition, where the inhibitor is binding, and whether adding additional substrate will overcome the inhibition. You should also know that ultimately enzymes are unchanged by the reactions they catalyze.
