Molecular Recognition and Self-Regulation
The phenomena associated with molecular recognition and self-regulation are found in both biological and chemical molecular systems. At an early stage in the catalytic reaction of an enzyme in vivo, the enzyme recognizes a substrate and forms a substrate-enzyme complex. Self-regulation of the enzyme occurs at the substrate-binding site to identify the shape and positions of functional groups of substrate. Chemical molecular systems called host-guest complexes also have molecular recognition and self-regulation properties.
