What is allosteric control of enzymes ?
« on: 02/08/2004 19:42:28 »
what are allotropic modullators regarding the enzymes that brings about the conformational changes in the active site of enzymes.

Do you mean what are they or what are some examples of them?

Do you mean allosteric modulator?  That's just a molecule that brings about a change in the conformation of the binding site of a protein by binding to a regulatory site on the protein.  Allotropes are different forms of an element.  i.e. diamond and graphite are different allotropes of carbon.
