Enzyme Inhibition

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


This article describes various approaches to inhibition of enzyme catalysis. Reversible inhibition includes competitive, uncompetitive, mixed inhibition, noncompetitive inhibition, transition state, and slow tight-binding inhibition. Irreversible inhibition approaches include affinity labeling and mechanism-based enzyme inhibition. The kinetics of the various inhibition approaches are summarized, and examples of each type of inhibition are presented.
