BIOCHM-YI6ZS3

Enzyme inhibitor A only binds to an enzyme after the substrate has bound. It does not bind to free enzyme but only the enzyme substrate complex.

This inhibitor would exert the following effect.

A

The inhibitor would result in an apparent increase in ${ K }_{ m }$ and ${ V }_{ max }$.

B

The inhibitor would result in an apparent decrease in both${ K }_{ m }$ and ${ V }_{ max }$.

C

This inhibitor would increase the apparent${ K }_{ m }$ and would not change the${ V }_{ max }$ .

D

This inhibitor would decrease the apparent ${ K }_{ m }$ and would not change the${ V }_{ max }$ .

E

There is not enough information to determine.
