Explain why enzymes are specific in their action .

Asked by michelle monica 7th March 2013, 10:02 PM
Answered by Expert


The enzymes are so specific to their action because they have substrate binding site which has three dimensional configuration which binds to the complementarity three dimensional substrate molecule and hence the enzymes are specific in binding the site and their action 
In case if the structural configuration of the enzyme changes the substrate is unable to bind at that site and the reaction does not take place.
