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.


By the end of this lesson, you should

  1. understand different types of enzyme inhibition
  2. understand strategies for design of enzyme inhibitors
