Chapter 6—Behavior of proteins what is a catalyst what is an enzyme; what is an active site; why do we need enzymes; how do enzymes speed up reactions? what is the difference in the lock and key vs. induced fit models of substrate binding know what a transition state is and how enzymes effect it types of catalysis: acid/base; covalent; metal, transition state; proximity, orientation, electrostatic etc know the kinds of amino acids that will be involved in active sites and their chemical function; how does the environment effect active sites (i.e. pH) and why (remember what you learned about pKs of the ionizable side chains!!) how does the chymotrypsin active site work, see Chapter 6 exercise explain specificity of serine proteases--trypsin, chymotrypsin, elastase how do zymogens work Chapter 7—Enzymes and kinetics the classes of enzymes and type of chemical reaction they catalyze know the M/M equation and definations of Km, Vmax, kcat, etc.--how do we use these to
