The rate at which an enzyme catalyzes the reaction that converts a substrate to product
Acidic Amino Acid
An Amino acid that has a carboxylic acid side chain (-COOH), which ionizes as a week acid.
A secondary level of protien structure , in which hydrogen bonds connect the NH of one peptide bond with C=O of a peptide bond later in the chain to form a coiled or corkscrew structure.
The building block of proteins; consisting of an amino group, a carboxylic acid group, and a unique side group attached to the Alpha carbon.
Basic Amino Acid
An Amino acid that contains an amino (NH2) group that can ionize as a weak base.
An organic molecule, usually a vitamin, required as a cofactor in enzyme action.
B (Beta) - pleted sheet
A secondary level of protein structure that consists of hydrogen bonds between peptide links in parallel polypeptide chain.
A pocket in a part of the tertiary enzyme that binds structure and catalyzes a reaction.
The end amino acid in a peptide chain with a free (-COO-) group.
The most abundent form of protein in the body, composed of fibrils of triple helixes with hydrogen bonding between -OH groups of hydroxyprotein and hydroxylysine.
