An enzyme and its substrate are joined in a test tube however no product is formed. The other molecule is added to the tube, and now the product is formed at the normal rate. Give two reasons.
I know this has to do with inhibition, however how do I know what type of inhibition is working on the substrate?
If an allosteric control was added to the tube, it could turn on the enzyme and make it generate a product.
The other thing which could make the product start forming is if a Reversible competitive inhibitor was added, as the inhibition will drop off.
