Action of enzymes

HideShow resource information
What are enzymes?
Biological Catalysts
1 of 6
What can they do in the body?
Speed up chemical reactions by acting as biological catalysts
2 of 6
What are the two types of enzymes?
Intracellular, Extracellular enzymes
3 of 6
Describe enzymes
Globular proteins, Enzymes are highly selective catalysts, meaning that each enzyme only speeds up a specific reaction
4 of 6
Explain the lock and key model
The substrate fits into the enzyme like how a key fits into a lock
5 of 6
Explain the 'induced fit' model
As the substrate binds, the active site changed shape slightly to fit the substrate more closely.
