9.3.3 Noncompetitive Inhibition (Mixed Inhibition)12

In noncompetitive inhibition, also sometimes called mixed inhibition, the substrate and inhibitor molecules react with different types of sites on the enzyme molecule. Whenever the inhibitor is attached to the enzyme it is inactive and cannot form products. Consequently, the deactivating complex (I · E · S) can be formed by two reversible reaction paths.

  1. After a substrate molecule attaches to the enzyme molecule at the substrate site, then the inhibitor molecule attaches to the enzyme at the inhibitor site.
  2. After an inhibitor molecule attaches to the enzyme molecule at the inhibitor site, then the substrate molecule attaches to the enzyme at the substrate site.

These paths, along with the ...
