Describe ONE similarity in the interaction between receptor: hormone , antibody: antigen, enzyme: substrate ? PLEASE HELP
All mentioned complexes (receptor-hormone, antibody-antigen, enzyme-substate) are involved in a molecular recognition.The molecular recognition involves non-covalent interaction between molecules. To form complex, molecules must be complementary in shape and charges, and usually, they are compared to key and lock. This way, the selectivity and specificity of recognition between molecules are assured.
