Unformatted text preview: How would one depict this? In order for an enzyme to catalyze a reaction what must happen first? Chapter 6 What about arrows? Enzymes catalyze both the forward and reverse rates. Figure 6.1 What was the constant here? What was the variable? Extra Describe why buffering is such an important part of living organisms, include a molecular example. How does the primary structure of a protein (e.g. collagen, myoglobin) relate to its overall folding and/or function? How do conformational changes occur? How do conformational changes contribute to the function of proteins? Explain the advantage for cells to maintain intracellular substrate concentrations within the range of 0.1 Km to Km. Regulatory enzymes in metabolic pathways are often found at the first step that is unique to that pathway. How does regulation at this point improve metabolic efficiency?...
