This lesson will illustrate the different kinetic scenarios for enzyme inhibition: reversible, irreversible, competitive, non-competitive; and the different strategies for enzyme inhibition: transition state analogues, mechanism-based inhibitors. Examples of enzyme inhibitors for medicinal targets will be illustrated.

Aims[edit]

By the end of this lesson, you should

  1. understand different types of enzyme inhibition
