How is the chemistry that underlies the binding of lysozyme to its substrate is the same as that for antibody binding to its antigen?
How does the lysozyme hold on to its polysaccharide substrate?
Where is the bond to be broken held close to relative to the enzyme? Because of this, what happens activation energy of the reaction?
There is the formation of noncovalent bonds.
It holds it in such a way that one of the two sugars involved in the bond being broken is distorted from its most stable shape.
Next to two amino acid side chains of glutamic and aspartic acids located in the active site of the enzyme. It is greatly reduced.
