Analogy: Enzymes of a Caterpillar

Storyboard Text

  • The caterpillar/larva represents the substrate because they are being transformed during the process of metamorphosis
  • The inside of the cocoon is the enzyme because it is transforming the caterpillar into a butterfly
  • The resting caterpillar inside the cocoon is the enzyme-substrate complex because they both bound to the cocoon
  • The whole cocoon is the active site because it is where the caterpillar and the inside layer of the cocoon binds
  • The butterfly is the product because it is finished being transformed by the enzymes to create a wonderful organism!
