Can be overcome by increase [S]
Does not alter V
Binds at active site
Can not be overcome by increase [S]
Does not alter K
Removes a phosphate from a protein; this is covalent modification
Breaks peptide bonds between amino acids
: Activation of Digestive Enzymes
Occurs viad the binding of a regulator molecule to an allosteric site of an enzyme and does not involve dephosphorylation
Occurs when the activity of an enzyme is continuously on; this can occur in response to an association with an activating subunit or dissociation from an inhibitory subunit
Standard Free Energy -
Free energy =
' + RTlnK, where K = [C][D]/[A][B]
G for the hydrolysis of one phosphate group from ATP in the body
Protein-cleaving enzymes. Many have an active site with a serine residue whose OH group can act as a nucleophile, attacking the carbonyl carbon of an amino acid residue in a polypeptide chain
The addition of a phosphoryl group from an ATP to the hydroxyl of serene, threonine, or tyrosine residues. Phosphorylation on an enzyme can either activate or inactivate the enzyme.
phosphorylate proteins using free-floating inorganic phosphate (P
) in the cell instead of ATP
Three meanings of oxidize
attach oxygen (or increase number of bonds to oxygen)
Three meanings of reduce
remove oxygen (or decrease number of bonds to oxygen)
Theoretical ATP yield from cellular respiration in Eukaryotes and Prokaryotes
30 and 32
