The Way They Work
(To the tune of "The Way We Were")

Enzymes

Mighty powerhouse peptides

Cause reactions to go faster

In the cellŐs insides

 

Tiny substrates

Bring about an induced fit

Enzyme structure is affect-ed

By what binds to it

 

Can it be that itŐs just simple zen?

How the enzymes activate

If they bind effector, will they go

To an R-State, T-State?

 

Folding

Gives the mechanistic might

To three-D arrangement

Of the active site

 

(Additional stanza)

Enzymes

Have a bias they canŐt hide

Hydrophobic side chains are

Mostly found inside

 

So itŐs the structure

For celebrating

Whenever thereŐs debating

The way they work

The way they work
