*Regulation of Enzyme Systems* *Regulation of Enzyme Systems* Metabolic systems are controlled by regulating some of their enzymes. Types of Regulation Types of Regulation 1. Control of gene expression : geneR protein- SLOW, IRREVERSIBLE 2. Zymogen activation : inactive proteins processed into active enzymes; pieces of polypeptide removed- IRREVERSIBLE 3. Regulatory enzymes - complex enzymes; REVERSIBLE 4. Covalent modification

Zymogen Activation Zymogen Activation inactive precursor( zymogen ) R ACTIVE - at cellular level zymogen granules (full of zymogen proteins) At the molecular level: At the molecular level: Pepsinogen pepsin Trypsinogen trypsin Chymotrypsinogen chymotrypsin
Background image of page 2
Details of Chymotrypsinogen Activation: zymogen = chymotrypsinogen processed by the pancreas with chymotrypsin secreted into the intestines. Chymotrypsinogen is a single polypeptide of 245 aa residues. The active product is sometimes called α-chymotrypsin

Feedback Inhibition Feedback Inhibition Last or near last product of synthetic pathway inhibits the first enzyme in pathway. efficient common regulatory enzyme. Regulatory enzymes are complex & nearly always have quaternary structure.

Allosteric Enzymes Allosteric Enzymes 1. Complex, multimeric 2. Several binding sites Catalytic sites-- substrate Regulatory sites -- inhibitory or activator -- sometimes several sites of each type 3. Conformational change 4. Not obey Michaelis-Menten kinetics
Background image of page 8
G enerally, for an allosteric enzyme, rate(v) vs [S] is sigmoidal sigmoidal instead of hyperbolic. Simple enzyme = hyperbolic: at low [S], activity fairly high Complex, allosteric = sigmoidal: activity low at low [S], increases greatly in midrange Efficiency is better, more responsive to [S] [S] v sigmoidal
