Enzymatic Activity at Polymer Tips Only

Abstract

In the first six chapters of this book, we have examined a simple aggregation process that involves physical interactions only. There is no chemistry. These are termed “equilibrium aggregates.” Chapters 7 and 8 are more complicated in that we study the aggregation of enzyme molecules: in addition to the intermolecular (i.e., interenzyme) forces that produce the aggregation, the subunits of the polymer may be engaged in enzymatic activity. Such polymers are called1 “steady-state aggregates.”
