Which of these statements about enzyme inhibitors is true?
A competitive inhibitor binds to the enzyme at a place that is separate from the active site.
A noncompetitive inhibitor does not change the shape of the active site.
When the product of an enzyme or an enzyme sequence acts as its inhibitor, this is known as positive feedback.
Inhibition of enzyme function by compounds that are not substrates is something that only occurs under controlled conditions in the laboratory.
The action of competitive inhibitors may be reversible or irreversible.
