Top Highlights

  • As these cellular demands and conditions changes, so do the amounts and functionality of different enzymes.
  • factors that can affect or control enzyme activity. These include pH and temperature (discussed in the active site article), as well as:
  • Enzyme activity may be turned "up" or "down" by activator and inhibitor molecules that bind specifically to the enzyme.
  • Many enzymes are only active when bound to non-protein helper molecules known as cofactors.
  • Storing enzymes in specific compartments can keep them from doing damage or provide the right conditions for activity.
