Competitive inhibition

(Science: chemistry) inhibitor that occupies the active site of an enzyme or the binding Site of a receptor and prevents the normal substrate or ligand from binding.

at sufficiently high concentration of the normal ligand inhibition is lost: the Km is altered by the competitive inhibitor, but the vmax remains the same.
