Enzymes explain the induced fit model of enzyme action evaluate the strengths of the induced fit model against the lock and key theory apply knowledge of tertiary structure to explain enzyme specificity and the formation of enzyme-substrate complexes. Structure of Enzymes: All enzymes are tertiary globular proteins, where the protein chain is folded back on itself into a spherical or globular shape. Each

enzyme has its own sequence of amino acids and is held in its tertiary structure by hydrogen bonds, disulfide bridges and bonds. Thisionic complex 3D shape gives the enzyme many of its properties.

How Enzymes Work: Enzymes are biological catalysts - they speed up the rate of metabolic reactions, without being used up themselves. These reactions can be of two types: where larger molecules are broken down 1. Reactions into smaller molecules. 2. Reactions where small molecules are built up into larger, more complex, molecules. Enzymes react with another molecule called the SUBSTRATE. Each enzyme has its own special shape, with an area, the ACTIVE SITE, onto which the substrate molecules bind. This is known as the lock and key theory. You will

have seen this at GCSE. Models of enzyme action: lock-and-key 4 of 34 Boardworks Ltd 2008 How Enzymes Work: Modern interpretations of the lock and key theory suggest that in the presence of the substrate, the active site may change in order to fit the substrates shape. This is called the INDUCED FIT HYPOTHESIS.
