What are allosteric enzymes and their function?

allosteric enzymes and its regulation

A Modulator is a metabolite that, when bound to the allosteric site of an enzyme, alter its kinetic characteristics. The modulators of allosteric enzymes may be either stimulatory or inhibitory. Many enzymes do not demonstrate hyperbolic saturation kinetics or typical Michaelis-Menten kinetics. Graphs of initial velocity vs. substrate demonstrate the …
