Common Enzyme Strategies (Chapter 9) Enzymes act by binding substrate with free energy from weak interactions and by stabilizing the transition state 1. Covalent catalysis. Active site modification (chymotrypsin) 2. General acid-base catalysis (chymotrypsin) 3. Metal ion catalysis. Stabilization of charged intermediate (polymerases), increase acidity of another molecule (carbonic anhydrase), contribute to binding energy (NMP kinase) 4. Catalysis by approximation. Physical proximity of 2 substrates (NMP kinase)
