    • Equilibrium is unchanged--same amount of substrate is necessary, just Vmax has changed
  101. Explain why most competitive inhibitors have structures similar to the substrate for the enzyme they inhibit whereas most noncompetitive inhibitors do not
    Competitive bind at same site, fool enzyme.  Noncompetitive bind at a different site.
  102. Uncompetitive inhibitors
    • bind reversibly to ES but NOT to E.
    • Increasing substrate concentration doesn't displace enzyme
    • E + S⇄ES
    •         +I⇅
    •           ESI
  103. Uncompetitive inhibitors: predict effect at Vmax

  109. 5 strategies to regulate enzyme activity
    • Self Regulation
    • Isozymes
    • allosterism
    • covalent modification
    • proteolytic activation
  110. Self-Regulation
    • When [S] in cell is near Km.  High [S] = high reaction rate, [S] stays stable within a narrow range
    • low [S] = low reaction rate.
  111. Regulatory enzymes
    • regulate an entire metabolic pathway
    • catalyze irreversible steps in pathway (large Keq or very exergonic)
    • activity increases or decreases in response to metabolic concentration
    • catalyse 1st committed step in pathway
  112. Committed step
    place where a metabolic pathway has no more branches, exists only to make the one final product. Where regualatory enzyme catalyzes
  113. Allosteric regulatory enzymes
    • exist in 2 conformations
    • binds substrate noncovalently at active site
    • regulatory/allosteric site binds effectors noncovalently
    • have quaternary structure and exhibit cooperative kinetics (binding one makes others more able to bind)
    • effector can decrease or increase activity
  114. allosteric
    "other shape".  Exists in multiple conformations
  115. effectors
    modulators that bind noncovalently to alter enzyme activity, changing Vmax or affinity.  Can be positive or negative
  116. cooperative kinetics
    • different from michaelas-menten
    • one subunit binding makes next subunit change shape, become more or less likely to bind
    • can be negative or positive change
  117. homotropic effector
    when the substrate is the effector that causes cooperative kinetics in an allosteric enzyme, as in hemoglobin
  118. heterotrophic effector
    • when the substrate is not the effector that causes cooperative kinetics in an allosteric enzyme.  
    • Can increase or decrease enzyme activity by changing Vmax or K0.5 (one or the other)
    • rarely similar to S or P (end products or intermediates of metabolic pathway--feedback loop
  119. negative effectors
    inhibitors.  Binding of effector causes allosteric change to less active conformation, decreases activity
  120. positive effectors
    activators.  Binding of effector causes allosteric change to more active conformation, increases activity.
  121. name an allosteric protein that is not an enzyme.
    what is the homotrophic effector?  What are the heterotrophic effectors (2)?  Are they positive or negative?
    • hemoglobin. 
    • oxygen
    • 2-3-BPG and protons
    • negative, stabilize T-state
  122. Discuss differences and similarities between oxygen binding sites on Hb and the active site on allosteric enzymes
    • similarities: cause shift to more active form/conformational change.  Functional binding sites that allow enzyme to function.  
    • differences: enzyme catalyzes reaction, Hb does not have a catalytic site, releases substrate unchanged
  123. structure of allosteric enzymes
    must have quaternary structure.  Subunits may be identical or different , symmetrically arranged.  If same, each subunit has separate catalytic sites and regulatory sites.
  124. saturation curve of cooperative kinetics is
  125. [S]0.5 and/or K0.5 are seen in
    cooperative kinetics, where vo=1/2 Vmax = K0.5
  126. feedback inhibition
    product or intermediate turns loop off at committed step.
  127. R state
    More active state of allosteric enzyme, does not necessarily mean relaxed.  Preferentially binds and is stabilized by activators and substrate, makes more R.
  128. T state
    Less active state of allosteric enzyme, does not necessarily mean taut.  Preferentially binds and is stabilized by inhibitors, makes more T.
  129. concerted model of allosteric bonding
    S binding to 1 subunit switches all subunits to R, increases affinity for S and increases activity
  130. Sequential model of allosteric bonding
    • S binding to one subunit changes only that subunit.  Hybrid "T-R" in dimer.  
    • Increases likelihood of adjacent subunits undergoing change, so still cooperative
    • intermediate states have intermediate levels of activity, so fine-tuned
  131. allosteric enzymes with heterologous subunits
    • cataylic (C) subunit has substrate binding site
    • regulatory (R) subunit has heterotrophic effector sites
    • binding of positive heterotrophic effector causes conformational change in R subunit that goes to C subunit and increases activity (usually increases affinity)
  132. Covalent modification as regulation
    • Enzyme exists as more or less active (2 states), conversion is covalent.  
    • Most common is addition of Pi to Ser-OH
  133. How can phosphorylation of one side chain alter catalytic activity
    • covalent modification, changes polarity and bulk.  Can alter folding/tertiary structure/conformation, changing salt bridges and activity.  
    • substrate can be attracted or repelled by new charge in the way, may need OH or PO4 to bind.  Catalytic activity may be based on OH or PO4, nucleophile/electrophile
  134. glycogen metabolism is regulated in which way?
    • covalent, phosphorylated.  
    • Only one side active at a time (phosphate activates one side and inhibits the other) to avoid futile cycle.
  135. compared to allosterism, covalent modification as regulation is _________
    • slower (make and break covalent bonds is slower)
    • amplifiable (cascade of reactions, initial activates cascade, can grow exponentially)
  136. proteolytic enzyme activation
    • zymogens require splicing to work, irreversible.
    • Helps restrict time and location of enzyme activity
  137. zymogen
    • inactive precurser of an enzyme
    • N-terminal extension (signal sequence) that that tags the enzyme for secretion.  Cleaved co-translationally.
  138. why is it important for proteases and peptidases (trypsin and chymotrypsin) to be made as zymogens and have proteolytic activation?
    Need to delay activation so they don't eat the cell.
  139. what protects stomach and gut lining from being digested after chymotrypsin and trypsin proteases are activated?
    mucus.  Proteins in bilayer aren't exposed due to mucus lining and glycocalyx.  Chains of sugars hang into lumen and block peptide bond.
  140. Proteases have a limited half-life in the stomach and intestine.  Explain
    can't be reversed, always stay active after activation, so much be INactivated.  Pepsin by pH in intestine, or natural small inhibitors that live in intestine for permanent inhibition.
  141. Pro- or -gen indicates
    • inactive form
    • prothrombin, fibrinogen
  142. Pre- indicates
    precursor, secretion.  N-terminal signal sequence on a zymogen, sends out for secretion.

  146. beta anomer of glc means
    OH on the top of C1
  147. mutarotation
    interconversion between alpha and beta forms in a ring.  Exist in equilibrium, change frequently
  148. anomeric carbon
    carbon in the ring attached to O and OH, C1 in ring, causes alpha or beta
  149. anomer
    isomers that differ in configuration only about the anomeric carbon
  150. The most stable sugar and why
    D-glc, beta anomer in chair formation.  Has 109.5 bond angles and EVERY OH is equatorial.  So body runs on glucose.
  151. Explain why the C-2 and C-3 OHs in glc have little tendency to add across the carbonyl
    bond angles are too loose or too tight.  C5 is 109.5, just right.
  152. hemiketals
    • OH
    • R-C-O-R'    ketone + alcohol
    •    R"
    • closes ring in fructose, makes furanose.  Ring is more stable than chain, 5-ring rather than 6 due to enzyme
  153. How to find the anomeric carbon
    Look at the O in the ring.  Next to it, the C with OH attached.
