Affected/Denatured Enzymes

Post by mjlubash » Mon Mar 12, 2007 5:33 am

Hi all!!!
I am having some problems coming up with examples of how (besides temp and ph) enzymes in the human body can be affected or denatured? And also examples of enzyme damage that is reversible/irreversible. If anyone has any thoughts at all on the subject I would really appreciate them!!! Thanks! :wink:

I believe cyanide is a noncompetitive inhibitor. It irreversibly distorts the conformation of an enzyme involved in electron transport.

noncompetitive
