Enzymes (Core and AHL & C2)

Covering the core and AHL/ SL Option C content, here is a rundown of enzymes, from active sites to end-product inhibition. Again, there are lots of animation resources out there, many of which are used in the presentation – click on the shadowed images to go there.

Check out this article on the potential use of an enzyme in second-generation biofuels.

Enzyme Basics:

What is an enzyme? from Northland (the best one – including inhibitors, pathways and feedback inhibition)

How enzymes work from McGraw Hill

Enzyme basics from KScience.co.uk

A full collection of savable enzyme animations from Husam Medical

And John Giannini’s Enzyme collection is nice and clear.

Enzyme activity and kinetics

Nice virtual lab from KScience.co.uk

Enzyme kinetics from Wiley Interscience

Denaturation:

Protein denaturation from McGraw Hill

Inhibition

Complete tutorial from Wiley Interscience

What is an enzyme? from Northland

Feedback (end product) inhibition from McGraw Hill

And here’s a quick run down on YouTube:
