Enzyme Inhibition. Inhibition:. Certain chemicals prevent enzymes from working. Role of Bond Strength. Strong Bond :Irreversible Inhibition Weak Bond: Reversible. Competitive: Works on active site. Non-competitive: Influences enzyme away from active site. Types of Inhibition.
-Always quaternary structure
-Specific receptor sites
-Each subunit with own active site
-Binds activators or inhibitors
-Graph (reaction rate vs. enzyme concentration)
