Module 10 Set 7

rate increases as [substrate] increases
no further increase occurs after all enzyme molecules are saturated with substrate
Km: substrate concentration req'd by enzyme to operate at half its maximum velocity
Km: affinity of enzyme to substrate
lower Km higher rate/ affinity
Vmax: rate of product formation when enzyme is saturated with the substrate operating as fast as possible
each enzyme has specific pH and temperature optima
denaturation: loss of enzyme’s structure and activity when temperature and pH rises too much above optima
usually optimum temperature is close to maximum temperature
enzyme production MUST be controlled in cells
noncompetitive inhibitor binds enzyme at site other than active site; changes enzyme’s shape so that it becomes less active
competitive inhibitor directly competes with binding of substrate to active site
you can overcome inhibition by adding more substrate
Thomas Cech and Sidney Altman discovered some RNA molecules also can catalyze reactions
Examples of splicing ribozymes catalyze peptide bond formation; self-splicing; and involved in self-replication

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
