Question details

Basic Concepts Worksheet 2.2 Description: Serine protcases such as Chymotrypsin are incredibly importam to cellular metabolism as they facilitate the brcakdown of enrymes into smaller peptides. These enzyme work through an &-step mechanism in which a serine residue, with belp of a histidine and aspartate foems what is termed as a catalytic triad. The first step of chymotrypsins mechanism is shown below. Instructivesi Using good old fishioned pen and paper (pencil is ok sook pleass fill in the happening in each part of the mechanism H0 What amino acids do trypsin and chymotrypsin cut at? How does the enzyme know to cut there? Propose an altemative for aspartate and histidine in the catalytic triad. Draw out this interaction
