This subversion of the allosteric control allows another molecule of ceftaroline to access the active site, which inhibits the function of the enzyme, leading to cell death by MRSA.
Metabolic plasticity of skeletal muscle tissue involves faster changes in enzyme activity via allosteric control as well as post-translational modifications that increase the control of mitochondrial content and substrate preference (16,19).
Thirdly, this mechanism of allosteric control over enzyme specificity also pointed out that the structural factors that govern substrate recognition by the enzyme active centre could not be presented by simple additive models.
