Enzyme kinetics: competitive vs. non-competitive inhibition

With Kompetitive inhibition: Km increases; no change in Vmax.

With Non-kompetitive inhibition: No change in Km; Vmax decreases.


Enzymes: classification

Over The HILL“:

  • Oxidoreductases
  • Transferases
  • Hydrolases
  • Isomerases
  • Ligases
  • Lyases

Enzymes get reaction over the hill.


Enzymes: competitive inhibitors

Competition is hard because we have to travel more kilometers (Km) with the same velocity“:

With competitive inhibitors, velocity remains same but Km increases
