Enzyme Inhibitors and Enzyme Substrates

Enzyme Inhibitors and Enzyme Substrates

Enzyme inhibitors are compounds that inhibit enzyme activity. Enzymes are catalysts that promote chemical reactions in organisms and are highly specific and efficient. Among them, some enzymes are extremely active. While performing normal physiological functions, they can also easily cause diseases. Enzyme inhibitors have important application value in biochemistry and related fields.

According to their mechanism of action, enzyme inhibitors can be divided into three categories: reversible enzyme inhibitors, irreversible enzyme inhibitors, and transition state enzyme inhibitors. Reversible enzyme inhibitors are a class of compounds that can bind to an enzyme but can dissociate from it. Irreversible enzyme inhibitors form relatively stable covalent bonds with enzymes, resulting in permanent inactivation of the enzyme. Transition-state enzyme inhibitors are a class of compounds that are structurally similar to enzyme substrates and can form stable complexes with the transition state of enzymes.
