ordered on-random off mechanism

A scheme for substrate binding and product release for multisubstrate enzymes; for a two-substrate two-product enzyme with this mechanism, the individuals have to bind to the enzyme in a distinct order; however, once the products are formed they may dissociate from the enzyme in either order. It has been suggested that pyruvate kinase has such a mechanism. The random on-ordered off mechanism is simply the reverse of this mechanism.
