In competitive inhibition the relation of Km and Vmax is one of the following:
|A||Km and Vmax are the same|
|B||Km increases and Vmax is the same|
|C||Km decreases and Vmax increases|
|D||Km and Vmax decreases|
a. Competitive inhibition → Reversible, Km is high but Vmax is same
b. Non-competitive inhibition: - Reversible or Irreversible, Vmax lowered and Km unaltered.
