Enzyme Catalysis Is A Moving Experience
Enzymes have been studied for more than a century, but a new study reveals an aspect of their behavior that has gone almost completely unrecognized until now. The research shows that enzymes are pushed around in solution by forces generated by the reactions catalyzed in their active sites.
The work shines a light on a basic but unappreciated aspect of enzyme behavior. It could lead to a better understanding of the way motor proteins move . . .
