Lecture 14 Enzymes Speed up reactions Sucrose -> fructose +glucose Graph of enzyme Paper +O2 -> smoke + ashes+ CO2 +H2O Paper molecules: dispersed, disordered. loss of free energy Very large, important class of protein Binds to ligand (substrate) -> products Do this over and over again Native protein conformation Active site Enormous catalytic power (catalyst) -> speed up the rxn by lowering the activation energy Graph High specificity for a given substrate Table
