enzyme and change the physical shape of it. This induced fit will allow the enzyme to metabolize the substrate(s) to create product(s) (Goldina et al, 2010).
Unfortunately, many environmental conditions can negatively affect the enzymes metabolizing activities. Enzymes are able to be inhibited, or prevented from metabolizing, by other molecules or chemicals (Sizer, 1957).These molecules, known as inhibitors, are sometimes similar in shape to the substrate that the enzyme usually binds to (Sizer, 1957)
