How do they do it? Comparison of reaction rates with and without catalysis for one reaction. Enzymes have reaction rates up to 10 8 X the uncatalyzed reaction
Background image of page 4
What is an “active sites”? What is a “substrate”? The binding of substrate to active site initiates catalysis The binding site is complementaryto substrate structure

Strategies that enzymes use to catalyze reactions: use of amino acid side chains for acid-base catalysis, and cofactors binding energy from the bonds made between substrate and enzyme in the active site

entropy reduction: bringing substrates together in the correct orientation desolvation of substrates: water solvation is replaced by amino acid side chains
