Ive been studying enzymes and today was learning about these inhibitors.
I understood it but was thinking why would the body want enzymes not to beable to function?
Is there an actual reason for inhibitors or is it a quirk of nature?

To control rate of reactions in the body
Im pretty sure theirs inhibitors in the krebs cycle of aerobic respiration, you can research it
I think that comes up as an exam question regularly in A2 AQA a level biology so that reading could be helpful as well
Can't really remember specifically since it was a year ago lol

Wow thanks so much but that Q9 is difficult.Where do I start?I will find the mark scheme and give it a go.
I have had a quick read of Krebs cycle but will have to look at it when less tired!
An A grade in biology is so good,by looking at the content I would be over the moon with a B or C.im a mature student,part time nurse self studying at home.

part a) and b) is application of enzymes question, no need to learn all of respiration for it
I got lucky with coronavirus
