Induced Fit

Some articles on induced fit, induced:

Enzyme Catalysis - Induced Fit - Catalysis By Induced Fit
... The advantages of the induced fit mechanism arise due to the stabilizing effect of strong enzyme binding ... Differential binding is carried out by the induced fit mechanism - the substrate first binds weakly, then the enzyme changes conformation increasing the affinity to ... is important to clarify, however, that the induced fit concept cannot be used to rationalize catalysis ...
Heterotropic Allosteric Modulator - Models of Allosteric Regulation - Sequential Model
... the sequential model dictates that molecules of substrate bind via an induced fit protocol ... While such an induced fit converts a subunit from the tensed state to relaxed state, it does not propagate the conformational change to adjacent subunits ... need not exist in the same conformation molecules of substrate bind via induced-fit protocol conformational changes are not propagated to all subunits substrate-binding ...
