  • The factors affecting enzyme activity
    • pH
      • Outside of optimal pH range ionisation of a.asidechains [R-groups]-change in conformation
      • Enzyme denatures.
    • Temperature
      • Effects K.E of s and E
      • determines frequency of S + E interaction
      • Rate of reaction increases until E is saturated
        • Determines frequency of S+E interaction
    • [substrate]
      • Determines frequency of S+E interaction
    • Presence of Inhibitors
      • Reversible, Irreversible, competitive, non-competitive, uncompetitive.
