    I'm revising non-competitive inhibitors for my resits and there's a word I can't remember. When a non-competitor binds to an enzyme, it binds somewhere other than the active site and I remember there being a word for that site and it's really annoying me that I can't find that word

    Correct.
    The allosteric site is another site that can allow a molecule to bind to it and change the tertiary structure.

    I always remember the word 'allotrope' which is the different structural forms an element can exist in. So if you take the stem of that, you get the same idea; different form of an active site.
