• How can allosteric inhibition be competitive inhibition?

    Allosteric inhibitor or activator will bind at allosteric site which is different from active site of enzyme. Isn't it? Please explain.

  • @anag
    An allosteric inhibitor binds to the enzyme, inducing it to assume an inactive form. All noncompetitive inhibition is allosteric inhibition, but not all allosteric inhibition is noncompetitive inhibition because certain forms of allosteric inhibition can prevent the substrate from binding to the active site.
