Enzyme Inhibition

Enzymes catalyze reactions as well as performing many other functions. This animation focuses on enzyme inhibition. The overview discusses how scientists measure the catalytic efficiency of enzymes. The next section examines the basics of enzyme inhibitors and the third section reviews over the three types of reversible inhibitors (competitive, noncompetitive and uncompetitive). There are also pop-up questions throughout this animation.
