Biochemistry QA's: Chapter 5 Cumulative
Last Modified: 2016-03-08
- Enzymes accelerate rate of rxn by decreasing activation energy (ΔG‡)
- Enzymes provide a different transition state (in terms of e‾ energy) with less energy content required for a rxn, thus speeding up rxn to the same degree in both directions.
- Lysozymes break down the cell walls of some bacteria and help protect the body from bacterial infections
- antibacterial enzymes
- Found in some bodily secretions, like mucus, tears, and saliva, and act defensively at points of entry into body
- Transition-state analogs are stable compounds that mimic the unstable transition state of an enzyme reaction
- Powerful enzyme inhibitors that provide insight into an enzyme's behavior
- "tools" to understand exactly how enzymes work
