Are Enzyme Inhibitors Bad?

1 Answer

  1. No, not all enzyme inhibitors are bad. Enzyme inhibitors bind to the enzyme and prevent it from doing its work. Enzyme inhibitors help maintain homeostasis by regulating various metabolic processes in living organisms. Enzyme inhibitors are divided into two categories:

    • Inhibitors that compete with the substrate for binding at the active site are known as competitive inhibitors.
    • Non-competitive inhibitors bind to an allosteric site, which is different from the active site, and cause conformational changes in the enzyme structure.
