Enzyme-substrate complex

Definition

noun

A non-covalent complex composed of a substrate bound to the active site of the enzyme.


Supplement

The enzyme-substrate complex is formed during a chemical reaction. The substrate may still dissociate from the enzyme. The enzyme may then be recycled and combined with another substrate to form the complex.
