B3 Enzymes (Combined Science)

Here are key terms and definitions: Key terms B3

For self-assessment questions, with exercises and discussions, just click on ‘The chemicals of living cells’ (qu.13 onwards) at Biology GCSE & IGCSE Question Bank. A powerpoint (the chemicals of living cells) can be downloaded from the same site here. The s-cool revision site lets you revise the topic, summarizes the topic and tests you on it. GCSE Bitesize has revision pages (that take you through the topic), a test and an activity.

Enzyme Inhibition explained:

Short, simple animations about enzymes to show conformational change/straintransition state (activation energy), proximity and orientation, chemical interaction, biochemical pathway & allosteric enzyme.

Here are some fantastic animated tutorials from McGraw Hill Education – how enzymes worka biochemical pathway  &  feedback inhibition of biochemical pathways.
Wiley have a number of Interactive Animations about enzymes, just click on ‘Catalysis’ or ‘Enzyme Inhibition’ or ‘Enzyme Specificity’ in the link.

They also have ‘Introduction to Metabolism’ & click on ‘Metabolic Process Location’ to see an Interactive Animation which is a good review of metabolic processes in the human body.
