The first step is binding The second step is the chemical reaction – i.e. create the transition state Once bound in the proper orientation, side chains and cofactors are involved in catalysis Acid-base catalysis – addition or removal of protons Covalent catalysis – a covalent bond to the protein is part of the transition Metal ion catalysis – water activation and redox Active sites stabilize charge associated with transition

Water is not a good source of protons for acid-base catalysis Weak acids (carboxyl groups) are good proton donors Weak bases (amines) are good proton acceptors Side chains of amino acids situated within the active site become the acid-base donor-acceptors Isolation from solvent modifies the pKa
