    Solution Preview

    An allosteric enzyme is defined as a regulatory enzyme with catalytic activity modulated by the non covalent binding of a specific metabolite at a site other than the active site.

    Explanation - In the metabolic pathway, groups of enzymes work together in a sequential pattern to carry out a given metabolic process. Allosteric enzymes comprise the first enzyme in the enzymatic series. In every enzyme system, there is one ...
