Catalytic Mechanisms The Basics
For a proposed enzyme mechanism, the information about the
reactants and intermediates must be coordinated with the 3Dstructure of the enzyme.

Enzymes An Introduction
Catalysts are substances that speed up the attainment of equilibrium.
A catalyst does not change the position of the reactions
It lowers the amount of energy needed for the reaction to
Enzyme kinetics is the central approach to understanding the
mechanism of enzyme catalysis.
Enzyme kinetics involves determining the rate of a reaction under
