Unformatted text preview: 5. Co-factors 6. Inhibitors (Fig. 8.19) a. competitive inhibitors b. non-competitive inhibitors (Fig. 8.20) 7. Activators and cooperation IV. Metabolic pathways (Fig. 8.21) V. Some things you should know after studying this chapter A. Terms: anabolic, catabolic, potential and kinetic energy, free energy, exergonic and endergonic reactions, enzymes, Activation Energy, active site, competitive and non-competitive inhibitors, allosteric regulation, feedback inhibition. B. Explain why the hydrolysis of ATP is an exergonic reaction (diagrams may help). C. How do enzymes catalyze reactions? What do they do? D. By what mechanisms to enzymes lower the activation energy of reactions? E. How do temperature and pH influence enzyme activity (be able to make drawings)? F. Compare competitive and non-competitive enzyme inhibitors (similarities and differences). G. Why is feedback inhibition important in biological systems?...
